Rock and roll meets red carpet is one way to describe Presley's jewelry line. Her pieces are fashioned around bold, colorful crystals in gothic, romantic and regal designs.
“All the pieces ... they're from my own experience, from my travels, from gifts, of course, that Elvis gave me,” she said in a recent phone interview.
Elvis' influence is especially apparent in Priscilla Presley's Maltese Cross band ring — a wide band of white enamel rimmed with crystals and inlaid with a gold Maltese cross set with crystals.
“I wear it all the time,” she said.
“I've had a collection of crosses throughout the years that were given to me by Elvis.”
She said she plans to use the crosses given to her by her late ex-husband to influence future lines of her jewelry collection.
A royal family-worthy necklace, bracelet and earring set in the line features intricately set crystals in vibrant hues of blue and onyx. Teardrop earrings with striking canary yellow crystals dangle elegantly from the signature Maltese cross.
A regal triple strand pearl necklace is embellished with a peaceful crystal dove in flight, and a cathedral-window inspired pendant is set with smoke- or champagne-hued crystals.
Each piece in the collection is a statement and can be worn as such.
“I want people to take a little bit of a risk and wear pieces like this with say a crisp white blouse ... or just something that's simple,” she said.
But this spring, you can throw out any old-fashioned rules about how you wear your jewelry.
“We're at a great time right now when we can really play with jewelry, we can really have fun,” she said. “Before, we were so restricted with dos and don'ts. I think right now with jewelry, it's a free-for-all.
“You can pretty much do what you want to do as long as you're wearing things that you love. Because when you wear those, you feel more comfortable, you feel more confident.”
