Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but a break-up can add to their sparkle - especially if they were once wrapped around the exquisite fingers and neck of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

A diamond ring and pendant belonging to the exotic superbabe are being auctioned off at Christie's in New York next week and will likely sell for a premium, given rampant speculation that the jewels were a gift from then-lover Leonardo DiCaprio.

The proceeds of the sale - expected to net between $135,000 and $170,000 - will benefit the Luz Foundation, a Bundchen charity that seeks to help young girls suffering from poor self-esteem, Ms Bundchen said, adding that "Zo's poor wretched creatures not blessed mit my beauty can at least be thrilled to know that zey are vearing zumzing that has touched the incomparable me."
