RAPAPORT... An engagement ring given by Donald Trump to actress and singer Marla Maples in 1991 will be auctioned in New York later this month for an estimated $300,000.

The emerald-cut, 7.45-carat, Harry Winston diamond ring will go under the hammer at the Lotte Palace Hotel on June 29. 

Trump, the presumptive Republican Party candidate in the U.S. presidential elections this November, proposed to Maples with the ring 25 years ago. Following their divorce in 1999, Maples sold the ring for $110,000 in June 2000 through an auction by Joseph DuMouchelle. The same private buyer is returning to the auctioneer for the resale. 

“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,” said Joseph DuMouchelle, the auctioneer’s owner and president. 

“Fortunately, this ring has it all. The pieces included in this sale are heirlooms of investment quality.”
