While he may not be the best wedding gift giver in the world, Donald Trump definitely makes sure that his wives are sporting large engagement rings during their marriages. The ring he bought for his second ex-wife, Marla Maples, is being sold in an auction on Wednesday — for a whopping $300,000.

The ring, a ginormous 7.45-carat emerald-cut rock (about the size of a postage stamp), is being sold by its owner through Joseph DuMouchelle, the same auctioneer who originally sold it for Maples in 1999 following her divorce from Trump, Yahoo reports. Back then, the ring was purchased for $110,000.

Now the same couple is selling it, and the auction is happening at the New York Palace hotel in New York City — near the site of Trump's actual wedding to Maples at the Plaza Hotel.

The actress and the presumptive Republican nominee got married in 1993 after a controversial and first-marriage-ending affair (which caused his divorce to Ivanka Trump). Maples is currently known for her spot on Dancing With The Stars, but back in the day it was her tabloid-filled romance with Trump that helped rise her to fame as an Inside Edition correspondent. Recently she shared with People that she wasn't truly about that life. "Putting on gowns and going out hosting events and having Harry Winston put jewelry on my hands was always uncomfortable for me — that was me playing a role," the 52-year-old noted.

Their December 1993 wedding was a lavish '90s affair attended by over 1000 people, with Maples wearing a white silk long-sleeve Carolina Herrera wedding gown, a $2 million dollar Harry Winston tiara, and grasping a bouquet of pink roses. The nuptials were covered by 17 television crews, 90 paparazzi photographers, and a slew of gossip columnists, according to the New York Times. Among the guests was the infamous O.J. Simpson, who shared with Inside Edition outside the wedding, "I think everybody in the country believes that maybe their relationship could work if this relationship works." Awkward. The two split in 1999, and they have one daughter, Tiffany, together.
