Auction House

Sharon Tate Ring Is LEGIT,

We Have Proof

The auction house behind the controversial Sharon Tate "engagement ring" tells TMZ ... it has written confirmation from Roman Polanski verifying the authenticity of the jewelry ... and claims it WILL NOT yank the item from the auction block.

TMZ broke the story ... Sharon's sister Debra insisted the ring wasn't Sharon's "official" engagement ring -- and also claimed it was NOT on her finger the night she was murdered by the Manson family.

But a rep for the auction house GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com tells us, "It was speculated that the ring was on Sharon Tate's finger at the time of death but never confirmed so we do not dispute Tate's sister Debra's claim."

The rep adds, "We do, however, have photographic proof of Tate wearing the ring (seen above) and written confirmation from Roman Polanski stating that this was, in fact, the engagement ring that he gifted to his then-fiancee, Sharon Tate."

"Gotta Have It! along with the consigner are 100% confident in the authenticity of the ring. There are no plans to pull the ring from the Gotta Have Rock and Roll Pop Culture auction as the consigner, who maintains ownership of the ring, is committed to its sale."

Currently, the ring is scheduled to hit the auction block on November 30.

Any auction house called "GottaHaveRockandRoll" loses credability with me. Plus selling a murdered woman's jewelry they claim is right off her dead finger, makes it disgusting too

Sharon was so naturally beautiful. She blows all of these fugly, horrible plastic surgery enhanced actresses we have today out of the water.

I'm wondering why Roman didn't give this ring to Sharon's mother. Wouldn’t that have been the right thing to do after Sharon passed away?

We all know Roman is a creep but to give the ring to a "friend" of Sharon's and not her mother or sisters makes me sick.

The point is she wasn't wearing it at the time of her murder and besides who cares anymore. Move on.

Give me a break!    

The auction house trying to connect the ring to the night of the murders is just gross and cheap sensationalism to jack the price of the ring up. No one said it wasnt her ring, they argued the story the presented it with. Ghoulish if you ask me.

Sharon was a Beautiful woman I think the Ring is Pretty also. The Proceeds from the sale should go to Charity that should be the only way someone should gain anything from this poor woman and her unborn child's death.
