Marilyn Monroe’s wedding ring and nude painting to go under the hammer

As a part of the “Icons of Hollywood,” Auction Joe Maddalena Profiles in History is all set to bring some interesting items under the hammer. Off these, watch out for Marilyn Monroe‘s Wedding Ring And Earl Moran nude painting that can be good keepsakes to hold on to. The ring in question is a platinum eternity band that is studded with 35 baguette-cut diamonds (with one diamond missing) that Marilyn Monroe was presented to by Joe DiMaggio on January 14, 1954, which was their wedding day. The ring is estimated between $300,000 and $500,000.

Another money-spinner would be the original color Earl Moran of a young nude Marilyn Monroe dated 1948-1949. The oil painting measuring 23.5 inches by 35.5 inches has been signed by the painted on the lower right end. This part of Marilyn Monroe’s life is estimated between $70,000 and $90,000.
