Marilyn Monroe’s diamond wedding ring is set to go up for auction. If you are fantasized for a vintage band of this legendary beauty, you have a chance to own this platinum eternity wedding band studded with 35 baguette-cut diamonds.
As stunning and captivating as Marilyn, this platinum band was given to her by Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio at their wedding on Jan 14, 1954. The marriage was called off in a span of one year. It was reported that DiMaggio even planned to ask Marilyn to remarry him before her suicide by drug overdose. He later claimed her body and arranged her funeral.
Calabasas based company Profiles in History is organizing this auction by the name ‘Icons of Hollywood’ from Dec. 15th to 17th this year. This piece of Marilyn memorabilia that is missing one diamond, is estimated to sell for between $300,000 to $500,000 at the auction.
If this classic wedding band isn’t in your budget, there are still plenty of other options available. You can choose from wide vintage styles or can even customize one as per your choice to add that Marilyn Monroe beauty to your flair.
