The ring was only expected to gross between $300,000 to $500,000 which was much lower than the purchase. The sparkler has an Emerald Cut center stone that is 16.21 carats and flanked on both sides are two trapeze cut diamonds measuring 1.80 carats a piece! The diamonds are set in a platinum mounting.

Christies had listed the ring on their website with the title of “An Impressive Diamond Ring, By Lorraine Schwartz.” A spokesperson for the Auction company said it was between two phone bidders and individuals in the back of the room.

The ring made $749,000 which is $249k more than projected sales! Kris only gets to keep $620,000 of the money made during the auction, but is planning on donating it to a charity. The ring sold for about $10,200 a day the couple was married.
