Lots include diamond necklaces and bracelets, a jewelry case, and even a used Revlon lipstick.

More than 500 lots of Marilyn Monroe’s belongings will hit the auction block in November, including a few pieces of jewelry that have never been auctioned before, the Daily Mail writes. The article lists a handful of the coveted items going up for sale: diamond necklaces and bracelets, a platinum diamond Blancpain watch, a jewelry cased owned by former husband Joe DiMaggio, a minaudiere, handbags, a used Revlon lipstick, handwritten notes, as well as other odds and ends.

The article adds that upon Monroe’s death in 1962, the items were bequeathed to her acting mentor, Lee Strasberg; his estate is now selling them off via Julien’s Auctions. All told, the items are expected to sell for between $2 million and $4 million. The auctions are scheduled for November 19-20.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
