The Harry Winston-designed 7.4 carat ring realised $300,000 at Joseph Dumouchelle in Birmingham, Michigan.

Maples later sold it for $110,000 in 1999 following the couple's divorce - that's growth of 6% per annum.

If the controversial Republican nominee becomes president, it could be worth substantially more.
