Get a Peek at the Very, Very Glamorous Valuables Joan Collins Is Putting Up for Auction
A DIAMOND NECKLACE
This diamond necklace wasn't just worn by Joan Collins – it was worn by Alexis Carrington Colby in the Dame's most famous role on Dynasty. As such, it's expected to go for a whooping $4,000 to $5,000 when the star's treasures are sold at Julien's Auctions on Wednesday, Dec 16.
A DIAMOND SET
Diamonds are this girl's best friend. Collins wore this Christian Dior necklace and bracelet set during seasons five and six of Dynasty.
A PREMIERE GOWN
Collins donned this embellished gown to the New York City premiere of then-husband Anthony Newley's film Doctor Dolittle. The lucky winner of this lot will receive two photos of Collins in the dress at the event, too.
AN OSCARS DRESS
A more recent item from Collins' expansive collection is this blue-and-white Georges Hobeika evening gown, which she wore to the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar party.
A SET OF CHANEL NECKLACES
You wear sweatpants to the airport – Joan Collins wears a set of Chanel necklaces. The actress was spotted in these at London's Heathrow in 1989.
A PAIR OF SUNFLOWER EARRINGS
These sunflower-shaped earrings are clip-ons, from the famed jewelry designer Asprey of London.
A COLLECTION OF LOVE LETTERS
If you're looking for a piece of celebrity history, your best bet is this collection of love letters – still in their original envelopes – written to Joan by Warren Beatty back in 1960, when the two were engaged.
A VERSACE CHOKER
This over-the-top gold necklace, designed by Gianni Versace, is covered in coins bearing the image of Medusa, the snake-haired Greek mythological figure.
A MARCA-RELLI PAINTING
This untitled Conrad Marca-Relli work is expected to fetch as much as $20,000 in the auction.
AND A SECOND
Don't have $20,000 to spare? Also up for grabs is this Marca-Relli piece, which is estimated to go for a bit less: $8,000 to $10,000.
But the real jewel in Collins's Marca-Relli crown is this abstract painting – Julien's predicts that it will sell for $30,000 to $40,000.
A PICASSO PRINT
Bids for this framed print from the iconic artist are already surpassing expectations: It was estimated to go for $200-$400, and the current bid is at $500.
A DYNASTY RING
Don't be fooled by its size – this giant sparkler isn't a diamond, it's white crystal. However, it was worn on Collins' hand during Dynasty and Dynasty: The Reunion, which makes it worth more than any gem, right?
