Bernie and Ruth Madoff's Jewels Hit the Auction Block
The lavish jewels of Bernie and Ruth Madoff will go to auction.
For a pretty penny, you can own part of the now-toppled Madoff Empire.
The U.S. Marshals are auctioning off jewelry that belonged to Bernie Madoff and his wife, Ruth.
The money from the sale of six pieces of jewelry— including two Swiss watches, an antique necklace and a diamond tennis bracelet— will go to the victims of his Ponzi scheme that landed him behind bars in 2009.
The prices for each item vary.
Bidding for the two watches will begin at $21,000.
Those interested in owning an emerald necklace will have to start the bidding at $15,300.
For a bracelet that includes more than 650 diamonds on it, the bidding will begin at $21,000.
Bernie Madoff is now serving 150 years in prison for conning investors out of $50 billion.
