Elin Woods isn’t letting anything from the past hang around to bring her down. According to the National Enquirer she’s selling all of the jewelry Tiger gave her, including her engagement ring. She recently placed the pieces to go up for auction with Sotheby’s, where they’re expected to fetch around $2.5 million. Elin has asked that the jewelry be auctioned anonymously and that her name not be attached to the sale.

“It’s the ultimate act of revenge,” said a source close to Elin. “It’s her way of saying, ‘Now do you get the message? It’s over!’”

As the Enquirer has reported, only a week after finalizing his $100 million divorce settlement, the disgraced golfer began begging the mother of this two children to reconcile.

He recently pleaded his case in person after returning his youngsters from a visitation - but Elin told him to go stick his head in a sand trap!

Now Elin has instructed the famed auction house Sotheby’s to sell her fabulous bling, including her hefty antique diamond engagement ring.

Her entire jewelry collection could fetch close to $2.5 million…

“She treasured the pieces as gifts from a loving husband, but now figures they were more likely things he bought without much care to cover up his guilt.”

The stash includes a diamond necklace with matching earrings and other treasures from Cartier, Tiffany and Harry Winston. Elin has requested that she not be identified as the seller, disclosed the source.

I remember when Ellen Barkin sold off all her jewelry from her billionaire ex, Ron Perelman. She made $20 million dollars from the sale! In an interview with Parade, Barkin described the jewelry as “battle scars.” She saidI didn’t want to look down at my hand and be reminded of why I left him. I didn’t need to carry around baggage of a man who had tried to make me Mrs. Somebody. The jewellery wasn’t a trophy for me. It was more like a battle scar.” Elin probably feels the same, and wonders which prostitute Tiger was with the night before he bought her that diamond necklace.

Elin received an alleged $110 million dollar settlement in her divorce but is still said to have curtailed her lifestyle to make sure that the money lasts and that she leaves plenty for her kids.
