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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
