Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles sold a pair of Marilyn Monroe’s earrings for $185,000 during its April 11 and 12 auction.
The star wore the rhinestone earrings to the premiere of the Burt Lancaster and Anna Magnani film The Rose Tattoo in 1955. The clip-ons are composed of a single full-cut rhinestone and five strands of cascading baguette-cut rhinestones, all prong-set.
The earrings were last sold at Christie’s 1999 auction The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe in New York.Follow JCK on Instagram: @jckmagazine
