Judy West Wedding Ring Purchased by Elvis Presley (Lot 192)
Name of Lot: Judy West Wedding Ring Purchased By Elvis Presley
Brief Description: Another ring, yet again illustrating Elvis’s generosity, but with a unique, documented backstory. This ring along with all aspects of Sonny and Judy West’s wedding were paid for by Elvis. Just prior to the wedding, Elvis and Sonny went to the jeweler to pickup the rings. Unfortunately Judy’s ring, placed in the jeweler’s box, accidently fell out of the Stutz and was partially run over by Elvis. Please see the attached detailed story as written by Judy West, which was destined to be a biography, but never finalized. Possibly a brides worst nightmare, Elvis’s boyish charm and sense of humor shines through in Judy’s first hand account of the story.
Note the slightly oval shape to the ring, due to the mishap. The ring was of course repaired, as best could be, but Judy ultimately wore another one in it’s place.
