Now on eBay: Sarah Brice’s $20K Ring from Bachelor Charlie O’Connell
Sarah Brice and Season 7 Bachelor Charlie O'Connell tried to make it work once, then twice. She's saving the third time for eBay. Sarah tells InTouch Weekly she wants to auction off the $20,000 diamond ring Charlie gave her on The Bachelor finale. Charlie (brother of actor Jerry O'Connell) chose Sarah over Krisily Kennedy (later a Bachelor Pad contestant) back in 2005; he did not propose, but gave her this promise ring. The couple broke up in 2007. They reconnected months later and broke up again in April 2010.
"I need to move on, and looking at that ring wasn't helping matters," Sarah says. "It seemed like a bad omen to keep it. It's a gorgeous ring, though, and someone will be very lucky to get it." The ring has a starting bid of $5,000 on eBay. "I've decided the time has come: Tacori Diamond ring from TV's The Bachelor," Sarah tweets, adding, "A nice percentage of the money will be donated to Ace of Hearts Animal Rescue!"
So why is she allowed to do this when other Bachelor franchise stars, like Jillian Harris and Vienna Girardi, both reportedly had to give the producers their Neil Lane engagement rings after their respective relationships soured? According to Naxaf, Sarah got to keep the ring because she and Charlie stayed together for a minimum of two years since their season of the show ended. That's the rule!
