Does anyone know the background on that piece of jewelry?  Was it simply a ring De Kelley wore or was it written in to be character specific to McCoy?

I assume it was the actors seeing as it was never mentioned in the series or films

Read From Sawdust to Stardust that pinky ring belonged to Deforest Kelley's mother I thought it was a sweet touch. He never would take it off TV show or no.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

From everything I've read abt him over the last 30+ yrs, that sounds like vintage DeForest Kelley.  Thanks so much for the information!

It just added to his overall character, too. From all accounts, DeForest Kelley was a true gentleman in every respect of the word.

No problem, I reccomend highly that bio of him it was the best one from the original cast. Followed by George Takei's and Walter Koenig's

De even said "Me with the ring or no Star Trek with me at all".
"From Sawdust to Stardust" is a brilliant text, I am currently reading it and I enjoy it so much! A pity it's hard to get and expensive.. But it's worth buying
