Josephine Bonaparte’s Engagement Ring up for Grabs

If you’re looking for the perfect engagement ring for the love of your wife, we might just have an excellent suggestion. It’s not the most extravagant piece you’ve ever seen, and it doesn’t sport a huge stone, but it comes with centuries of history. It is the symbol of the unity between Napoleon Bonaparte and his first wife, Josephine de Beauharnais.

This is a piece of jewelry that has been symbolizing love and unity for hundreds of years, which makes it a perfect wedding ring for the person that means more to you than anything else in this world. It is a rather common gold ring with a pear-shaped sapphire and a lovely diamond, and it is estimated to go for €8,000 – €12,000 (about $11,000 – $16,000). The auction will take place on March 24 in Fontainebleau, Paris.
