A PRICE ABOVE RUBIES: Fine jewelry marks memorable occasions in one’s life, but it seems that Ellen Barkin is looking to forget some of hers. Sources told WWD the “Ocean’s Thirteen” star, and former wife of Revlon tycoon Ron Perelman, will be selling her impressive jewelry collection — much of which was given to her by Perelman, who filed for divorce in January after five years of marriage. Included in the sale is Barkin’s sizable collection from exclusive (and reclusive) Parisian jeweler Joel A. Rosenthal, JAR. Famous for his intricate micro-pavé setting and stone-intensive pieces, JAR’s jewels prices climb well into the millions. The sale, according to sources, will take place on Oct. 10 at Christie’s in New York.
