Those who love objects related to celebrities will find interesting the three wedding rings with sapphires, rubies and diamonds, a gift from Roger Vadim to Brigitte Bardot (estimate 6,000-8,000 euros). Director, screenwriter, actor and novelist Roger Vladimir Plemiannikov, born in Paris in 1928, meets Brigitte Bardot in 1950 during a summer vacation in Cap Myrtes near Saint-Tropez. She brigitte was 15 years old and her parents forbade her to marry until she the actress turned 18. Brigitte Bardot and Vadim eventually got married on December 19, 1952.
