the original Maltese Cross necklace

 


 
Below is a picture of the original Maltese Cross necklace and the original receipt from when Elvis purchased it. It is is on display at Graceland, Linda had drawn a sketch of the pendent the way she wanted it made, set with diamonds in the arms of the Cross, and then it was to have two hearts which were touching at the points with a circle around them like an eternity band. The hearts were set with Elvis’ birthstone and Linda’s birthstone. Again, this piece was totally hand-made and hand-set. The base of the pendent was white gold, the border of the cross was trimmed in yellow gold, and the wedding band that circles the two hearts is yellow gold. It was a very beautiful showpiece, and Elvis wore it proudly on all tours and all performances.
