Kris Humphries is ready to get rid of one of the last reminders of his brief marriage to Kim Kardashian.
The NBA star is apparently selling his ex's 16.21 carat diamond engagement ring at an auction at Christie's Jewels in New York City on Oct. 15. Although the ring is not explicitly listed as belonging to Humphries, it matches the dimensions of Kardashian's engagement ring and is made by the same jeweler. Christie's Jewels lists it as "the property of a gentleman."
According to The Daily Mail, Kardashian fought to keep the ring in their divorce but the jewel was awarded to Humphries. Kardashian and Humphries were married for just 72 days before the reality star filed for divorce in October 2011. Their divorce was finalized in April 2013.
Humphries certainly isn't the first celebrity to auction off a wedding ring. Click through the slideshow below to see what other stars did with their rings after their splits, including a few who went the auction route as well.
In 2004, Kim Basinger auctioned off her 3.7-carat Tiffany engagement ring from Alec Baldwin, from whom she filed for divorce in 2001 after seven years of marriage. The ring sold for $59,750 and the proceeds went to the Performing Animal Welfare Society.
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce from Russell Armstrong in July 2011 -- just one month before he tragically committed suicide. After his death, the reality star had to surrender her $250,000 engagement ring (as well as other personal property and an undisclosed sum of money) to a group of investors in order to pay off her late husband's debts.
In September 2011, White House party crasher Tareq Salahi called it quits with Michaele Salahi -- his his wife of eight years -- after she ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon. After the split, Tareq auctioned off his platinum Tiffany's wedding band to "get some closure." A portion of the profits also went to charity.
Ellen Barkin and Revlon mogul Ron Perelman were married for six years before they divorced in 2006. After the split, Barkin auctioned off her wedding ring -- and other pricey jewelry from her billionaire ex -- for a whopping $20 million. "These are just not memories I want to wear out every day," she said before selling the jewelry collection. The actress had planned to use the money to start a film production company with her brother.
Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer finalized their divorce in February 2011 after 13 years of marriage. Two weeks later, Kelsey tied the knot with his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh. In December of that year, Camille was still sporting a 10-carat ring Grammer had given to her as an anniversary gift. But why? The reality star told Life & Style magazine that it was a reminder of how much he cared for her when they were together. "Would you buy a woman you didn't love this ring?" Grammer said. "He loved me, no matter what he says!"
