The ring shown at right is Elvis Presley's black star sapphire ring. The ring is in a nugget style often favored by the King and the black star sapphire is one of his favorite stones. The 14K gold setting is also set with small diamonds. This ring was worn by Elvis in the 1970s and later given as a gift to his tour promoter, Tom Hulett. The lot comes with two color 8" x 10" photos of Elvis wearing it during a concert performance as well as a certificate of authenticity from Mr. Hulett. It is estimated to bring $15,000.
Few undergarments sell as well as those belonging to blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe. But Heritage isn't auctioning off frilly lace here, instead they are selling set of red-and-white striped thermal underwear worn by the actress on the set of the movie "Bus Stop." It's believed the thermals were worn on set, most likely between takes while filming in Idaho. This item is expected to bring over $5,000.
