Shanna Mokler, 47, has decided to auction the engagement ring she received from her ex-husband Travis Barker. The 4-carat diamond ring has a starting price of $51,000, but the former model said that she’s hoping for $100,000.
"I think it is a beautiful piece and truly was my dream ring," she said. "However, that chapter of my life is over and even though wearing it at one time brought me great joy, I hope it will find a new home and continue to bring someone as much happiness as it once did to me. It’s truly an iconic ring!"
The auction is scheduled to run from Friday to Sunday, but it may be extended depending on the level of interest.
"I’m hoping it sells for $120K. It was worth about $160K," Moakler said. She contacted Worthy.com to coordinate the sale of the diamond ring.
The sale comes mere days after Barker married Kourtney Kardashian in a lavish Portofino, Italy wedding. The entire Kardashian family- minus Rob Kardashian – made the trip overseas to see Kourtney get married.
Moakler, however, insists the timing was only a coincidence.
"I’m sure people would assume that [it’s related to the wedding], but I simply wanted to find a proper seller and Worthy.com is the most professional and I know will give this piece the attention it deserves," she clarified.
Moakler shares her children: Landon, 18, and Alabama, 16 with the Blink 182 drummer. Barker co-parents Atiana De La Hoya, 23, Moakler’s daughter from her relationship with Oscar De La Hoya.
