UPDATE - Joseph DuMouchelle to Sell Donald Trump - Marla Maples Engagement Ring

7.45-Carat Harry Winston Engagement Ring Set to Hit the Joseph Dumouchelle Auction Block at 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, June 29th for an Estimated $300,000

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 15, 2016) - Estate jewelry auctioneer Joseph DuMouchelle will sell the Maples - Trump Harry Winston engagement ring for the second time at its June 29th auction being held at New York City's Lotte Palace Hotel. In 1991, Presumed Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump proposed to Dancing With the Stars contestant Marla Maples with the 7.45-carat emerald-cut diamond ring by renowned jeweler Harry Winston. Following the couple's divorce in 1999, Maples selected Joseph DuMouchelle to auction the ring and donated a portion of the $110,000 June 2000 sale proceeds to charity.

The same private buyer has returned to trusted estate source, Joseph DuMouchelle to sell the engagement ring at auction. "Provenance is often hard to come by when jewelry or artwork changes hands. The Harry Winston ring has multiple levels of provenance including the fact it was made by Winston and owned by Marla Maples and Donald Trump. Fortunately, this ring has it all. The pieces included in this sale are heirlooms of investment quality," says Owner, President and jewelry expert Joseph DuMouchelle, who worked with Maples on the first auction of the ring sixteen years ago.

The Maples - Trump diamond ring will be sold alongside estate pieces from Verdura, Cartier, David Webb and Tiffany & Co.
