Elvis experts and historians have long known about a collection of jewelry Elvis gave to his manager Col Parker.
Two hundred items, including gold rings encrusted with jewels, cufflinks, watches and chains, will go up for auction on Aug. 27. Also included is the guitar played by Presley during his famous “comeback” TV special of 1968.
Priscilla worked with Kruse on the collection, although Priscilla does not own any of the pieces.
Priscilla said, “It brings back memories for sure”. She added that it was a running joke with her former husband that he constantly bought or commissioned jewelry for Parker because the manager already had everything he needed and the Presleys did not know what else to buy him.
Priscilla said she felt protective of the items because she designed some of them, including artifacts with the logo for TCB Band - “TCB” stood for “taking care of business,” a favorite expression of Presley’s.
