The offered turquoise colored necklace was owned by Elvis Presley and was given to his cousin Patsy Presley. Elvis had a deep fondness for turquoise, owning dozens of different pieces including rings, bracelets and necklaces. The offered necklace no doubt would have caught his eye with its multiple beads simulating that blue turquoise color and texture (though not turquoise stones). The necklace is accompanied by a letter from noted collector Tom Salva detailing his acquisition of it among other items he purchased from Patsy. The letter states,

The item listed and shown above has been in my personal Elvis Presley collection since 1988. I purchased this item, and many others, from Patsy Presley, Elvis Presley’s cousin who worked as secretary in the offices at Graceland for many years during Elvis’ career. The item was originally from a jewelry box from Elvis’ bedroom dresser. I purchased the jewelry box and all its contents from Patsy in 1988. While it didn’t contain any of Elvis’ ornate jewelry with diamonds and gold, etc., it did contain many rings, watches, money clips, cuff links, bracelets, pins and other items of this sort that were often gifted to Elvis by family, friends and even fans. Included below is a copy of the money order with which I purchased the items from Patsy Gambill (her married name at the time) as well as a color copy of the handwritten letter from Patsy, dated October 25, 1988, describing the jewelry box and what it meant to Elvis.

Also accompanying is a color copy of the original letter from Patsy Presley Gambill, as referenced in Tom's letter.  The necklace measures 18 3/4 inches long and is made up of 15 different beads. It presents with minor chipping to several of the beads. Excellent condition.
