    Default Sharon Tate jewelry up for auction

    Sharon Tate Jewelry From Grisly Murder Up For Auction


    Murdered actress Sharon Tate's engagement ring -- the one she was said to be wearing when she was stabbed to death by the Manson Family -- can now be yours, TMZ has learned ... if you're willing to drop at least $10,000.

    According to the auction house hocking the ring, Tate's husband -- director Roman Polanski -- removed it from her finger when he was identifying her body at the morgue. He proposed to her with it in 1967.

    For those who forget -- Sharon and her unborn child were brutally murdered in 1969 by followers of Charles Manson. Police were unable to determine a motive.

    The ring hits the auction block on November 30th at GottaHaveRockandRoll.com ... along with a ton of other Hollywood and music memorabilia, including one of Madonna's bustiers and Justin Bieber's Super Bowl commercial jacket (below).

    Check out the gallery below for more.

    UPDATE: There are multiple stories that it was Roman Polanski's agent William Tennant -- and not Roman himself -- who identified Tate's body at the morgue. Roman was not in the country at the time.

    Sharon Tate's Sister She Was NOT Wearing Ring When She Was Murdered
    The Sharon Tate "engagement ring" hitting the auction block next week was NOT taken off the actresses' dead hand after she was murdered ... because she was NOT wearing any rings at the time of her death ... this according to Sharon's sister Debra.

    Debra tells TMZ ... the ring featured in an upcoming auction on GottaHaveRockndRoll.com DID belong to the actress ... but she gave it away to a family friend long before she was killed by the Manson family in 1969.

    Debra tells us ... the ring was not an "official" engagement ring -- but rather an "unofficial symbol of her relationship" with Roman Polanski. Debra says, "The ring was not Sharon's style and she never wore it."

    Debra says Polanski later gave Sharon an "official" engagement ring -- a gold and diamond band "which she treasured."

    Despite the auction house's claim, Debra is adamant Sharon was NOT wearing ANY rings on her finger at the time of her death -- adding, "Because Sharon was pregnant, she couldn't fit any rings on her finger."

    Sharon was two weeks away from her due date when she was murdered.

    So far, no comment from the auction site

    Even if she wasn't wearing it when she was killed it is still creepy. Who would want her ring other than a family member? *shudder*.

    Manson might bid on it from prison.

    Someone who needs the money? "Debra tells TMZ ... the ring featured in an upcoming auction on GottaHaveRockndRoll.com DID belong to the actress ... but she gave it away to a family friend long before she was killed by the Mansonfamily in 1969."

    Hopefully he doesn't have a spare $10,000.

    Looks like it has some stones missing but it's just wrong to make any money off this poor soul.
