Lowell Hays Gold Plated TCB Ring

The Making of the TCB Ring by Lowell Hays:

"Elvis asked me to make a stage ring; a big ring that would say Elvis to everyone who saw it. The first attempt to make it was in 1973. Elvis gave that ring away. The second attempt was the Aloha Ring, the one with the big horseshoe. He gave that ring to J.D. Sumner after the Hawaii concert. Elvis apologized to me for giving it away, but said it just wasn't exactly what he wanted. He asked me to work on a design using the lightning bolts and his TCB logo. We reviewed some sketches I did, and he liked them. I decided to make the ring out of wood. I carved it out of Balsa wood; I made the lightning bolts and glued them to the ring. Then I made the letters. I cut the onyx out of a piece of black plastic. Next, I glued stones to the lightning bolt, glued the letters with stones to the onyx, and a large center stone. Basically, I made the ring out of wood. He just couldn't believe his eyes when he saw it. 'I want it', he said and asked if I could have it ready by the next tour? I'll try was all I could say. I had the ring ready the day before we left on tour. I took it out to Graceland and sent word up to his room that I had it. 'Bring it up', he said. No, I want to show it to you at your dining room table, under this big chandelier. When he saw it he flipped out. He said even Liberace doesn't have a ring to equal this. The TCB ring was set with an 11.5 carat diamond in the center and 3.00 carats of diamonds in the letters and bolts. It was made in 18K yellow and white gold."

I just love my ring,and to know it came from the same mold of Elvis's ring is remarkable precious to me. I just love my ring.

An affordable recreation of something special

For those of us that can't afford the real thing (!) this is a great piece of memorabilia for a collection, or to wear everyday to show your respect to Elvis.

A ring fit for the King

This is an amazing ring. The quality is unsurpassed and the authenticity is guaranteed. As you will know, Lowell Hayes was Elvis's personal jeweller and for Elvis, only the best would do. This ring is the best. Lowell Hayes's TCB ring design is often copied but never equalled. The TCB ring is so much more than a replica of the original (when I say 'replica', lets not forget that the ring you buy was taken from the ORIGINAL mold that was used to create Elvis's own TCB ring), because TCB was an ethos that was a big part of Elvis's life. It wasn't just a 'logo' it was a statement and creed. To be able to purchase a replica of this iconic ring is amazing. The ring is part of music history, being adorned by the undisputed King, not only of rock n roll, but of music. The cost of the ring is so small for the quality, history and authenticity of being made by the 'source'. If you purchase this you are buying a piece of history and you get a beautiful ring into the bargain.
