Nearly 1,000 fans convened inside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood to bid on items from the beloved films, including Swan’s engagement ring and her “nightmare” wedding dress. The Prop Store, which organized the entire auction with Summit Entertainment, sold off Swan’s highly-touted ring for $16,800.

As previously reported the ring features 69 cubic zirconia diamonds with an estimated value between $3,000 to $5,000. The bidding for the ring started at $1,500.
