Topic: James bond ‘OnHer Majestys Secret Service’ Wedding ring for auction!!!

It has now become public knowledge that the James Bond ‘All the time in the world’ ring  (one of 2) from his one and only marriage in the 1969 film ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’ to Tracy Di Vincenzo will be going live to auction at Sotherby’s London on the 5th June!
There were 2 originals, one that Diana Rigg used in the film, which she later kept for herself, and a second, made incase the first was lost, stolen, broken etc.
We know there were replica’s made, of around 80 or so, with ‘All the love in the world’. However this one for sale, is one of TWO! No one knew these existed!!!
Take a look at the link below to see the lot number and starting price!

It will likely far exceed the listed price.

The 1998 sale ring was stolen and is lost forever.

Thanks, I have been reading this  ajb007/biggrin

I am in particular interested what the story behind this particular shot is:

It looks very different to your ring and the ring which has been sold in 1998.

It does look different . . . but the ones that were made more recently are still exceptional, beautiful! I compliment the designer.

The 1998 buyers were victims of a home robbery. They took gold and silver jewelry from a drawer. Not knowing what they stole, the robbers likely pawned it or a fence melted it down. So sad! Gone forever.

I still can't believe that Sir Robert  ajb007/frown . I thought Sothebys may have overvalued it initially especially when you take into account that it was not screen used. As a copy I'm not sure I would even class it as production made. It will be interesting to see if it ever gets exhibited in the near future under the production company's banner as I approached them when I was first made aware of its availability on the auction block!  ajb007/martini

On a personal note, it went for 5 times my absentee bid so it's not like losing it to one more bidder in the room on the day! ....Parp!  ajb007/frown

I wonder if the high bidder wants to buy a matching Asprey set? I think £100K should about do it!  ajb007/biggrin
