Ring Belonging To Manson Family Victim Sharon Tate Auctioned
The ring was surrounded in controversy -- with Tate's sister insisting it wasn't Sharon's "official" engagement ring -- but rather an "unofficial symbol of her relationship" with Polanski.
The auction house later produced a letter signed by Polanski, contradicting Tate's sister.
The controversy didn't seem to matter when the ring hit the block at the GottaHaveRockandRoll.com auction -- because the item sold for $21,260 ... well over the $10,000 starting bid.
So far, the identity of the big winner has not been revealed. more on this story
