An estate sale for the ages - Jackie-O's collection was auctioned off by Sotheby's in 1996. An estate auction so big that Sotheby's published a hard cover book to list it all. I found it Saturday and it makes for an interesting read. The big ticket item was Jackie's engagement ring from Aristotle-a 40+ caret diamond ring that sold 2.5 million. The auction, which featured several pieces of White House furnishings raised 34 Million. #estatesale #found #kennedy #jackieo #rarebooks #books #auction #auctions #sothebys #diamonds #1996 #urbanarcheology #collectables
