Princess Margaret's Family Auctions Off Family Jewels
The McDonald's jewels may be impressive but nothing get the jewel hunter excited like royal jewelry. Christie's has announced a sale of the late Princess Margaret's jewels and other objects to be sold in London on June 13 and 14. Princess Margaret, the sister of the queen, died in 2002 and her children are putting selected pieces up for sale. Items for bid include a Faberge clock, a diamond necklace and the Poltimore tiara which the princess wore at her wedding. The tiara is estimated at £200,000. The auction isn't all pricey items, at the low-end you can pick up a hedgehog brooch for a mere £50. The sale is expected to bring in approximate £2 million pounds.
