46145: A Rudolph Valentino Possibly Owned Elaborate 14K
The current owner bought this ring (and the box it comes in) back in 1954 at an antique store in Austin, Texas where the proprietor told him it came from "Valentino's Estate sale." Sadly, there's no definitive proof that this was indeed Valentino's ring, however, the engraving does seem to be 1920s era and Ullman really was the star's manager. Interestingly, Valentino's second wife, Natacha Rambova, was a devout Egyptologist so perhaps she influenced the choice of this ring? Please bid accordingly knowing this information.
