Elvis Jewelry – Elvis TCB Necklace – One night while sitting in his bedroom of his personal jet, Lisa Marie Elvis tore open an envelope and thinking carefully penned what has become known as the TCB Oath. Thereafter, anyone who was presented with a TCB necklace was given a copy of the TCB Oath.
Elvis wore one of the original TCB necklaces personally. He gave one to his Aunt Delta to keep for him. The original TCB’s were expensive and first class, explains Red West. “Elvis gave them to those of us who were around him, like myself, Joe Esposito. After awhile , as they became popular and Elvis began giving them out more and more of them, they got cheaper in material. When I gave my original one to Red Foxx , Elvis turned around and gave me another. I do believe Travis Tritt has my second TCB pendant now”
Sam Thompson, Linda’s brother and former Elvis bodyguard recalls the night Elvis presented him with his TCB Elvis designed jewelry. “I was downstairs at Graceland in November 1976 and Elvis sent Linda down asking me to come to Elvis’ bedroom, that he was very upset with me. I was worried as I climbed the stairs. “I was downstairs at Graceland in November 1976 and Elvis sent Linda down asking me to come to Elvis’ bedroom, that he was very upset with me. I was worried as I climbed the stairs.
“When I walked in their was Elvis, Linda, Billy and Jo Smith and Elvis broke into a smile. He took the TCB gold necklace/pendant out of a box and put it around my neck and then he read the TCB Oath and put his arms around me and hugged me.” In March 1977, Sam’s wife Louise was presented her TLC pendant. The Thompsons are among the few husband and wife teams who have both the TCB and TLC necklaces.
