The magnificent jewels from the collection of Ellen Barkin is a short fable in how money can't buy love, happiness, or a sense of dignity and respect.
Divorce is never pretty, but when it comes in the form of security guards escorting you out of your own home, it sure makes you wonder about the humanity of your husband.
Ellen Barkin's divorce from Ron Perelman was finalized on Valentine's Day of 2006. As a form of touche revenge, she gathered up all the jewelry Perlman had given her over the years and it will be auctioned off by Christies on October 10, 2006.
