A necklace famously worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, at one her last official engagements, are to be auctioned on September 24 in New York.
Auction house, Guernsey’s, has set an estimated selling price of $1.5 million to $2.5 million.
The princess wore the necklace on June 3, 1997, at a gala performance of “Swan Lake” at the Royal Albert Hall in London. She died in a car crash in Paris two months later.
Thousands of photographs were taken of her wearing the necklace. Arlan Ettinger, the owner of Guernsey’s, said, “It was said she was photographed more often that evening than on any other occasion except her wedding.”
The seller of the necklace is Jim McIngvale , a Houston furniture magnate known as Mattress Mac.
