Bachelor 2 ring sells for $28,300.
Though it had zero bids just hours before the auction closed, The Bachelor 2‘s 2.78-carat diamond engagement ring ended up selling for $28,300. 52 people bid on the ring, which had an assessed value of $29,000. Proving just how far her love for Aaron really goes, Helene said that selling the ring together like this was “a joint business venture” that they opted for, rather than heading to court. Lest you think they actually discussed this in person or on the phone, Helene tells the New York Post that they e.mailed about setting up the auction, so no actual contact was necessary.
