    During his 1973 January/February engagement he wore a combination of the "Hawaiian Male Vine" and a "Lion Claw" on a long chain.

    Then comes the April tour of 1973. From April 22nd to April 26th Elvis only wore the single "Anch". During the show in Portland on April 27th Elvis wore the "Anch" and a "Gold Star of David" on a single chain.
    During both Spokane shows on April 28th Elvis only wore the "Gold Star of David".
    The rest of the tour Elvis didn't wear any necklaces.

    Brilliant stuff Leroy! Thanks for taking the time to show us some of the ways in which to distinguish what year a particular concert and suit that went with it was.

    During the July tour of 1973 Elvis altered between some pieces. It?s always the ?Lion Claw? (on a short chain or a long chain), the ?Anch? or the ?Blue Cross?. In Atlanta on June 21st Elvis wore the ?Lion Claw? (on a long chain) in combination with the ?Anch?. During his first show in Long Island on June 22nd it was the ?Lion Claw? on a short chain with the ?Blue Cross?. On the 23rd at 3:00 pm it was only the ?Anch? while the evening performance was for the ?Blue Cross?. The closing show was for the ?Anch?.
    The two Pittsburgh concerts and the Cincinnati concert is blank for me because I don?t have any clear pictures. The same goes for Mobile at the beginning of the tour, Atlanta on July 29th, Nashville on July 1st afternoon show and Oklahoma City.
    St. Louis was played with the ?Lion Claw? (long chain) with the ?Anch?. The 3:00 pm show in Atlanta on June 30th was for the ?Lion Claw? (long chain) and the ?Blue Cross? while during the evening performance only the ?Anch? was used.
    During the evening show in Nashville Elvis wore the ?Lion Claw? (long chain) with the ?Blue Cross? and finally in Atlanta on the very last show of the tour it was the ?Lion Claw? (short chain) with the ?Blue Cross?.
    As I?ve already mentioned I miss a couple of dates because of the lack of some good pictures. Maybe someone can help me filling out the blank spots.

    Excellent stuff Leroy, keep it up - this is great info.
    I've puzzled over a few of these before but never sorted out a proper time line.
    Sensational.

    Thanks

    To Unchained: Thank you for the compliment. I know you are a top designer yourself and hearing it from you gives me great pleasure. To tell you the truth; I can't wait to get to his rings either. I wonder how I'm gonna overcome some of the designer problems.

    To Piers: Thank you for the kind reply. It's a hell of a job but someone's got to do it, right?

    It makes me glad my efforts are appriciated.
    Unchained: I'm working with a program called Ulead PhotoImpact. During the work I save it as a UFO-file. When it's finished it'll become a JPG.
    I do not master all possibilities yet, I'm still experimenting with making different kind of stones.

    And now were're getting at the end of 1973. This is a very unclear period which is usual for Vegas. There are only a handful of pictures of the period before the end of the engagement. What we do know is that he altered a lot between the "Anch" and the "Blue Cross". Sometimes even the ?TCB Pendant? came around the corner. It all becomes a lot easier in the period between August 31st and September 3rd.
    During the dinner show on August 31st Elvis wore the "Anch" and the "Blue Cross" together.


    At an informal meeting in his dressing room just before the 3:00 am show on September 1st Elvis received a gift from the hotel; a special thick and long gold necklace called the "Hilton Bolo Chain".
    Elvis would wear it throughout the rest of the year.

    September 1st - 3:00 am: "Anch" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"
    September 1st - Dinner show: "Anch" + "TCB Pendant" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"
    September 2nd - Midnight show: "Anch" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"
    September 3rd - Dinner show: "Anch" + "TCB Pendant" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"
    September 3rd - 1:00 am show: "Anch" + "TCB Pendant" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"
    September 3rd - Closing show: "Anch" + "TCB Pendant" + "Hilton Bolo Chain"

    A somewhat mystical period is the January/February 1974 engagement in Las Vegas. Only very little is known costume wise let alone about the jewelry. What we do know is that two items were used for sure. The "Diamond Maltese Cross" he got as a present from Linda. It could be either a Christmas 1973 present or a Birthday 1974 present.
    Elvis also wore another necklace during this engagement both on- and off stage. It was very hard to make out what kind of necklace it was but I have tried to re-create it a close as possible. It can be either gold or silver, I chose for the last version. If anyone out there have a better picture of this necklace please let me know.
