Sterling silver skull ring. The consignor's LOA reads in part: “I am a professional musician whose early career crossed paths with SRV during the years 1987-1991. I played dozens of shows with SRV and Double Trouble as an opening act while a member of the MCA recording act Broken Homes. I came into ownership of this piece of jewelry by accident. We opened the east coast leg of a Double Trouble tour in the late 1980s. One memorable date was staged at the Capital Theater in northern New Jersey, near my parents' home in Philadelphia. My group was a critical favorite and scheduled to be photographed for a future issue of Rolling Stone magazine following Stevie's performance. While visiting my parents while on a break, I left behind a suitcase with my jewelry and stage clothes. It was too late to retrieve it for the show or the photo shoot. Stevie had come off stage and noticed I was upset. He solved my problem by removing his scarves and jewelry and giving them to me for the photo session. It has been a long time but I remember the scarves were wet and there was probably enough DNA to clone a new SRV. I introduced him to my parents and awe-struck friends as he left the building. At the end of the shoot I put Stevie’s stuff into two large Tupperware containers with the intention of returning them to him as soon as possible. The return never happened. When I rang him at the hotel he said to bring the items to the next show, but we weren't scheduled to play together for a few nights and the items ended up sitting forgotten in a road case…until I discovered them 10 years later, still in my Mothers' Tupperware. The ring was owned and worn by the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan.” In fine condition, with a slightly indented band.
