British architect Norman Foster’s ex-wife Sabiha Rumani Malik is auctioning off two rings and a bangle designed for her by the architect during their four-year marriage in order to raise money for charity.
She is selling the wedding band that was given to her in 1991 on their wedding day, made from titanium.
The auction house Bonhams described the other ring as a two-tone band that was created by Foster for the pair’s third anniversary in 1994. The couple had separated a year later.
Both rings will be sold as a single lot in a jewellery sale in London with an expected price between
£3,000 and £5,000 (about $4500-$7400).
A matching titanium bangle was created for Malik during their first anniversary in 1992.
Malik is a designer who has created jewellery collection for diamond firm De Beers as well as being appointed as director of Foster + Partners. She has worked on numerous projects such as the Berlin Reichstag.
