Engagement ring


In 1978, it was said that Sid and Nancy got 'engaged' to extend Nancy's stay in London. The wedding band was given to Sid's mother Anne Beverley by the New York Police Department following her son's death in 1979. She passed it on to writer and director Alan G. Parker shortly before her death in 1996.

In 2007, it was sold to U.K. television presenter Helen Chamberlin for £1500. She said in an interview: "Yeah, I did buy the ring at an auction. There's no stone in it, it's just a metal ring from Camden Market. It probably cost about 50p but I think Nancy used to claim that it was her engagement ring."
