    A large diamond engagement ring that Donald Trump gave his second wife is going up for auction for an estimated $300,000. 

    The 7.45-carat emerald-cut, Harry Winston-designed ring is about the size of a postage stamp. Marla Maples sold it at auction after she and Trump divorced in 1999. It fetched $110,000. 

    Now, the American couple who purchased it has asked the same auctioneer, Joseph DuMouchelle, to sell it. The auction is on Wednesday at the Lotte New York Palace hotel in New York City. 

    DuMouchelle says: "It's a pretty design and very wearable." He says the pre-sale estimate is the appropriate market value for the item.
