Pamela Anderson is selling off the engagement ring her poker player ex Rick Salomon gave her when he asked for her hand in marriage to benefit her charity foundation.
The former Baywatch star wed Salomon in 2007, but the union was annulled two months later. They rekindled their romance in 2013 and Anderson confirmed in January, 2014 she and Salomon had remarried. She filed for divorce in July.
Now, five months after the divorce was finalized, the actress and model is auctioning off one of the last mementos from her marriage.
“I hope this very special Tiffany engagement ring can bring joy to someone while I put the donation to great use,” the 50-year-old star told PEOPLE, adding, “One hundred percent of funds raised will go to The Pamela Anderson Foundation [dedicated to human, animal and environmental rights] and this will mark the launching of my foundation’s new eBay charity store, where there will be signed books, magazines and more memorabilia.”
The Tiffany & Co. ring features a 3.24-carat cut diamond stone surrounded by cut diamonds.
Bidding for the Pamela Anderson ring will start at $100,000.
Back in April, Salomon and Anderson’s second divorce was finalized following a highly publicized whirlwind relationship.
Their breakup took a dramatic turn when Anderson secured a temporary restraining order against Salomon after alleging that he “engaged in repeated acts of harassment and abuse” that caused her to experience “severe emotional distress.” The two released the following joint statement at the time of their divorce:
“Public divorces can be harsh and cruel—we apologize to our families and friends for any hurt and embarrassment we have caused-we have come to an amicable agreement and are moving on. These are private and personal family sensitivities to consider and we retract any hurtful comments made in haste and distaste. We wish each other and our families well.”
