People will buy anything these days, especially if it was once worn or owned by a famous celebrity. Marilyn Monroe is no exception. Set to go on the auction block is her wedding ring! Joe DiMaggio gave her the 3.5-carat platinum and diamond wedding band at their wedding on January 14, 1954, nearly 60 years ago. Imagine the lucky girl who is suddenly in possession of such a magnificent ring with a storied history!
Marilyn’s ring will be auctioned off on December 15-16 at the Profiles in History Icons of Hollywood Auction at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. Also, ripe for the taking is her invitation to President John F. Kennedy’s birthday party in 1962 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In addition to being gorgeous, she certainly was one lucky lady!
Other auction items include the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz, a DeLorean from Back to the Future III, The Central Perk couch from the hit TV show, Friends, as well as rare items belonging to Steve McQueen and John Wayne.
