Viva Elvis Presley’s Piano!

Elvis White Knabe Grand Piano

Like a time portal from the 60′s directly to The Dina Collection, we have the beautifully preserved piano that once belong to the great and iconic Elvis Presley!  35 years after he died, we are still glorifying the king of Rock N’Roll, the inventor of Rockabilly and the most influential person in music history. He lives in our hearts and memories and now he resides in Beverly Hills via his favorite instrument the White Knabe Grand Piano. Yes, that’s right! This is the real, the one and only, the original and magnificent piano that was once featured in his his music room at Graceland from 1957 to 1969, and that inspired the biggest rock star of all ages.

What Made This Piano so Special to Elvis?

When Elvis was a boy he attended church revivals at the Ellis Auditorium in Memphis, TN. He was inspired by the gospel performers, moved by the music and payed special attention to the house piano, a Knabe grand piano, on which his inspiration was played. Years later the Knabe piano was put up for sale during a remodeling project at the Ellis. Elvis saw his chance and didn’t hesitate to purchased the Knabe piano which he loved so much! He then had it refurbished in white and moved it into his home.

How Much for Elvis Presley’s Piano You Ask?

If you want to rock down and own a piece of history then this is the piano for you. With a price tag of $1 million it is not something to give your grandkids – unless your grandkid is the seven year old musical genius Elias Phoenix – now he could really rock down on this fine instrument!

Instructions on How to Enjoy a $1 Million Piano

We imagine the best way to enjoy this piano is to locate it to a nice empty spot in your house as a focal point for entertainment. On the loudspeakers with surround sound that you should already have built into your walls you must blast classic Elvis songs all day Elvis Karaokelong. Keep a Karaoke machine at hand and ready along with an Elvis wig and studded costume. Be sure to place police blockade or police tape around the piano before you have company over and don’t allow any red wine on the premise! If you plan on having a major celebration such as a wedding, bar mitzvah or girls’ night plan ahead and secure yourself a skilled Elvis impersonator.

We wish you a wonderful and Happy Valentine’s Day full of love and happy memories!

A Valentine’s Day shopping tip from Dominique:

“Look for sweet memento jewelry – especially pieces that can be engraved. Lockets for photos are always nice but nothing beats something that belonged to you that she can wear and cherish!”

Dominique’s favorite part of Valentine’s Day: Conversation hearts, cuddles and cologne!

Dominique’s Top Tips For Jewelry Shopping

Valentine’s Day is coming up, which means now is the perfect time to be shopping for jewelry. Trust us, guys, almost every woman wants a shiny new trinket in a velvet-lined box on the most romantic day of the year. Dominique has proved time and time again on Beverly Hills Pawn that she pretty much knows everything there is to know about jewelry, so who better to dish out some advice?

In terms of the best general, fine-jewelry-buying tip, Dominique recommends really getting tactile with it. Don’t just look at it — pick it up, touch it, feel the weight of it, and even smell it. Though her nose is finely tuned to detect even minor impurities in precious metals, anyone can smell the brassiness of fake gold. And of course if you’re buying pearls you should run them along your teeth to see if they’re gritty and sandy the way real pearls should be. According to Dom, fine jewelry is like fine cuisine: it should stimulate all the senses.

So now we know how to detect fake gold and faux pearls, but what about diamonds? According to Dom, there’s a surefire way to tell a diamond from a cubic zirconia, and it’s basically to look into the stone the way you’d look into someone’s eyes. A diamond will sparkle, just like the eyes of someone you’re really connecting with. A zirconia will have the dead, empty look of the eyes of somebody you’d rather not deal with. Once you’re sure the rock is real, she also had a quick and easy trick to see if the stone is in a good color range. You take the diamond off your hand, and hold it next to a white piece of paper. If the stone still looks white, it’s a good color. If the stone starts to look yellowish, it’s probably lower on the color scale.

It’s February, which means it’s the time of year that lots of fellas will be buying one very special piece of jewelry indeed. According to Dominique, any guy in the market for an engagement ring should find out which shape of diamond his sweetheart wants. Every woman has been checking out rings for years, and it’s a pretty safe bet that she’s known what shape is her favorite long before she met you. If you bring the wrong shape, Dominique says that you’ll be dead in the water.

The final tip from Dominique is to remember that a special piece of jewelry doesn’t have to break the bank. Sometimes it’s the unusual, unique, imperfect pieces of jewelry that speak to us the most.
