THE KING AND HIS RING
It’s not every jeweler who can say that they made a custom ring for Elvis Presley, but Kortz can! After searching for an elusive black diamond for 14 years, in 1976 Elvis finally contacted none of than Bob Kortz to create the exact piece he wanted. Bob immediately set to work to locate the very rare gem.
Kortz successfully tracked down the unique gem and delivered it to Elvis himself, who was vacationing in Vail at the time. Not only did Kortz go on to make the ring, but he made a good friend, as well! And Elvis never forgot the Colorado origins of his infamous Kortz Original ring.
