Anonymous Donor Contributes £100,000 Towards Jane Austen Ring Purchase

August 13, 2013

austen_ringMore good news! Jane Austen’s House Museum has announced that an anonymous donor has contributed £100,000 towards the purchase of Jane Austen’s turquoise ring from Kelly Clarkson.

The museum has now raised enough to “show a serious expression of interest to buy the ring”.

It has until December to raise a further £49,000. The museum, in Chawton, Hampshire, is Jane Austen’s former home.

Thank you, anonymous donor! But there’s still a long way to go. Please read our post about how to donate and consider sending a donation if you are able, even a small one. We know times are tough for many of us right now, so if you can’t donate, spread the word! Twitter, Facebook, G+, wherever you hang out online, let everyone know about this campaign.

    Great news. I wonder who it is?
    Somebody like JK Rowling, I should think.
    Have a great day,
