Marilyn's 'Moon of Baroda' to go under hammer

The canary yellow gem was once a prized possession of Baroda's erstwhile royals, the Gaekwad family, for 500 years till it was sold to an undisclosed person in the 1920s. It will be auctioned at the Hong Kong autumn sale by Christie's on November 27. The event marks a dramatic reappearance of this gem after almost three decades after Monroe wore it in the song for 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.'
