Pamela Anderson is putting a piece of her history on the auction block. It just so happens that this piece of history comes in the form of a Tiffany diamond ring, which was Anderson’s engagement ring from ex-husband Rick Salomon.
Anderson and Salomon have been married twice to each other. The first marriage was annulled, but not long after that they got together and married again. According to Fox News on September 19, Anderson and Salomon’s relationship “has been marked by tumultuous breakups and reunions.”
The best way to describe Anderson and Salomon’s relationship from the beginning is on-again-off again. It appears that no matter what their relationship is today, Anderson is getting rid of this glamorous remnant of that union. This “engagement bling features a 3.24-carat round brilliant cut diamond stone that is surrounded by a layer of diamonds,” according to E News.
All that glitter and sparkle is expected to fetch a small fortune, as the starting bid is $100,000. The proceeds won’t be something the 48-year-old Anderson will be spending on vacations or items of luxury for herself.
The former “Baywatch” star is donating all the money to her charity, The Pamela Anderson Foundation. Her foundation “aims to protect human, animal and environmental rights,” according to Fox. Anderson wants the ring to bring happiness to its new owner. She said:
“I hope this very special Tiffany engagement ring can bring joy to someone while I put the donation to great use. One hundred percent of funds raised will go to The Pamela Anderson Foundation and this will mark the launching of my foundation’s new eBay charity store, where there will be signed books and memorabilia.”
The couple’s second and final divorce took place back in April, but it was messy. Anderson took out a restraining order against Salomon which stated that Salomon “engaged in repeated acts of harassment and abuse” that caused her to experience “severe emotional distress.” Apparently the two came to their senses and they released a public statement saying:
“Public divorces can be harsh and cruel—we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused-we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on. These are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well.”
