Just two days ago, Sotheby’s New York premiered a number of extravagant jewels from the estate of big band/swing singer Eydie Gorme. Almost all of the jewelry in her collection was a gift from husband Steve Lawrence, also her onstage partner. Among the jewels is a 36.53 ct emerald ring set in platinum and 18K gold. Um…can we just hold this ring please?

Any guesses on how much this ring was auctioned off for? A whopping…wait for it…$4,645,000!
