You Won't Believe How Much Bella Swan's Engagement Ring Sold for in the Twilight Auction
One mega Twilight fan just got very lucky…for a very hefty price.
Twi-hards near and far gathered for an exciting two-day auction at the Hollywood Chinese Theater on Nov. 19 and 20. The event was hosted by memorabilia company Prop Store, which put over 900 of the film’s biggest props up for bid.
One of the most exciting elements that went up for auction was Bella Swan’s engagement ring from Edward Cullen. The fan who ended up scoring the piece beat out over a thousand other bidders, putting up a whopping $16,800.
Other props that sold included Edward’s journal, which went for $7,800 as well as Bella’s meadow costume, which closed at $8,400.
If your mouth is agape over the mega bucks spent on the items, you’re not alone. Even the COO of the Prop Store, Brandon Alinger, was blown away.
“We’re thrilled with the interest and participation in this exclusive auction event,” he said in a statement. “The films have a global following, which was very evident with the worldwide response from bidders over the weekend. For Twilight fans, this auction offered an amazing opportunity to own a piece of the phenomenon and we were proud to partner with Lionsgate on the project.”
