Anne Hathaway's Jewelry Given by Con Ex Are Auctioned

September 15, 2010 (2:35 am) GMT
Rolex watches, a five-strand pearl necklace and other expensive things that Raffaello Follieri had given to the actress while they were dating would go under the hammer.

Jewelery given to by her ex-fiance, conman Raffaello Follieri, will be auctioned off later this month. The Italian businessman was sentenced to four-and-a-half years behind bars in December 2008 after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

Hathaway, who dumped Follieri shortly before he was arrested by federal authorities, was subsequently forced to hand over all the expensive gifts he had lavished on her during their four-year romance for prosecutors to use as evidence in the case.

Items included Rolex watches, a five-strand pearl necklace, two rings and a Louis Vuitton box - and they will go under the hammer on auction website txauction.com on September 28, according to the New York Daily News.
