Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces--all 12 signs of the zodiac are illustrated on the outside of this bracelet owned by Elvis Presley. Elvis Presley's passion for spiritualism of many kinds and his reading and study of the related subjects is legendary, and the offered bracelet is the physical embodiment of his interest in the zodiac. With his January 8 birthday, Elvis's zodiacalogical sign was a Capricorn--they are said to be grounded and practical as well as sensitive and creative. We couldn't think of a more apt description of a emotionally driven artist whose personal motto was "taking care of business."

The bracelet was eventually gifted to Elvis' cousin Patsy Presley, to whom he gave a great many things during the many years she worked in the offices at Graceland. The bracelet is accompanied by a letter from noted collector Tom Salva detailing his acquisition of the bracelet 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 bracelet measures 3 inches at its widest and is 1/2 inch tall all the way around. There are several small areas of chipping in the black inlay around the zodiac symbols. Moderate use. Near Mint condition.
