One lucky lady may get one heck of a holiday gift this year. Marilyn Monroe’s diamond wedding band from Joe DiMaggio will be auctioned in December, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The platinum eternity band set with 35 baguette-cut diamonds will be sold through auction house Profiles in History, and will be included in December’s Hollywood icons sale.
The ring is expected to fetch between $300,000 and $500,000.
Baseball great DiMaggio gave the bling to Monroe at their January 14, 1954 civil ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. They divorced less than a year later.
Other items to be auctioned in the sale include Judy Garland’s ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz” - estimated at $2 million to $3 million - and an original nude painting of Monroe.
The auction house will be announcing more items shortly, as well as the location of the sale, which is taking place December 15-17.
