Here's an old thread on here talking a little about this subject - hope it helps.(y)
I've heard almost everyone in his life take credit for that at one time or another .

'Elvis had the TCB Ring custom-made in 1974 or '75. It's made of gold, black onyx, and 16 carats in diamonds. The big diamond alone is over 11 carats of that total diamond weight. This ring is probably one of his most famous pieces of jewelry. There was a point when he had the large diamond removed. He called his jeweler Lowell Hayes late at night, wanting to have an engagement ring made for Ginger Alden and he needed a big stone. It's hard to get a big stone like that, you don't just have those lying around your jewelry shop, so in order to get the ring made as quickly as he wanted it made for Ginger, they took the big diamond out of the TCB ring and put it into Ginger's ring, which we understand she still has after all these many years. They put in a paste or cubic zirconium to replace the large diamond in the TCB ring. Elvis never got around to replacing the fake diamond with a real one.'
