“Turquoise Silver Bangle and Pinkie Ring
Both the Bangle and ring were owned and worn by Jimi Hendrix in the late 60’s. These pieces were taken from the Anim offices when they closed in the early 70’s and where I was a manager at the time, along with some of Jimi’s other clothing and effects. Both pieces have turquoise stones which was Jimi’s favourite stone set in Indian silver.”
