Jane’s ring.

A ring that was once privileged to grace the hand of Jane Austen, which may have been given to her by Tom LeFroy, was estimated to be auctioned off for £20,000-£30,000.

Try £150,000.

Wonderfully informative Jane blog here.

And FYI, on this 200th birthday of Pride and Prejudice, this may be the best adaptation ever:

  1. I’m of the opinion that to be considered an educated person, you have to have some exposure to Jane Austen; therefore, this past semester, I taught high school 19th Century Literature. 16 weeks of Jane Austen and the historical context (gentry class of Georgian England). It was fun and fascinating. There is so much more to it than my 18 students ever realized and I think they may have actually learned a thing or two… Including the English Country Dancing I made them do on the last day of class. 🙂
