Kobe Bryant's Ring Gifted to Mom Pamela to Celebrate Title Win Sells for $206KMay 24, 2020
A ring purchased by Kobe Bryant for his mother, Pamela, to commemorate the Lakers' 1999-2000 championship sold for $206,080 at a recent auction.
TMZ Sports reported the 14-karat gold and diamond ring was sold by Goldin Auction after a private collector owned them for seven years.
The rings, and other memorabilia, were initially sold to the collector for $280,000 in 2013. They were packaged together after Pamela and Joe Bryant attempted to sell several pieces of memorabilia, leading to Kobe filing a lawsuit against his parents.
An agreement was eventually reached for Kobe's parents to sell six items, including the rings. A similar ring gifted to Joe Bryant is also expected to be up for auction.
Kobe Bryant was one of nine people who died in a January helicopter crash that also killed his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
Several Bryant items have been up on the auction block, fetching sky-high totals since the Lakers legend's tragic death.
