Gisele Bundchen to auction off jewelry at Christie
Gisele Bundchen is going to auction her private jewelry collection to ‘Christie’s Jewels: The New York Sale auction’. The jewelry was reportedly gifted to her by an unnamed ex-lover.
The 28-year-old Brazilian model will be selling a 3.35 carat (coloured) diamond ring and a six-carat diamond pendant. Her collection is expected to fetch a hefty amount!
A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Russell Simmons-co-founded charity ‘Diamond Empowerment Fund’, which provides educational funding to diamond-producing countries in Africa.
Bundchen has previously dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio and has also been linked to professional surfer Kelly Slater. It is not known who the jewelry is from, which adds to the mystery!
The charity auction will be held on October 15.
