A little over a month after she gave up her “armed occupation and takeover” of her ex-husband Phil Collins's mansion and auctioned off a few of his gold records, Orianne Cevey is putting even more of the musician's possessions up on the auction block.

Kodner Galleries, who previously worked with the jewelry designer to purge her possessions that “no longer spark joy,” will host a second online auction of Cevey's belongings beginning on March 3. The auction house told Page Six that they're expecting the sales to bring in over $1 million dollars and Kodner Galleries’ president Russ Kodner said he sifted through “6,000 pairs of shoes and 3,000 handbags” to select the very best items for this auction. 

This time around, Phil Collins's ex is planning to sell the musician's “Testify” gold record award and his 1989 international rock award, along with a huge amount of designer purses, shoes, and high-end jewelry, such as a 40-carat emerald pendent. The auction also features different types of rare and commemorative coins, as well as a large number of very pricey men's watches from Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Richard Mille. There's also at least three engagement rings listed among the lots, although Cevey's representative told Page Six, they are “not her wedding ring.” 

Cevey hosted the first auction of her and her ex-husband's items at the beginning of February, selling items like the gold records gifted to the Grammy winner, a vintage stamp collection, a carved skull necklace, and an unset 10.35-carat diamond priced between $600k and $800k, all of which reportedly pulled in $2 Million. The jewelry designer gave 10% of proceeds from select items being donated to the Never Give Up Foundation, a charity focused on spinal muscular atrophy in children. 

At the time, Cevey's representative explained the sudden motivation behind the auction, saying, “She is moving to a smaller home and getting rid of some of her clothing and jewelry that she no longer wears…I mean, after all, she does have 5,000 pairs of shoes alone and only two feet—she can’t wear them all!” The rep added, “Orianne found organizing the move very cathartic and went very Marie Kondo and got rid of a number of items that no longer sparked joy for her.”
