NEW YORK (AP) — More than 200 items belonging to Frank and Barbara Sinatra ranging from movie scripts to jewelry are going up for auction.

Sotheby's on Monday unveiled the contents of Lady Blue Eyes: Property of Barbara and Frank Sinatra, which will go on the block in a series of auctions in New York in December. Sotheby's says the items, gathered over the couple's 22-year marriage, portray their public and private lives.

Barbara Sinatra's 20-plus-carat diamond engagement ring, which Frank Sinatra presented to her in a glass of champagne, is among the jewelry up for bid.

Copies of scripts include "From Here to Eternity," for which Sinatra won an Academy Award, and "Ocean's 11."

Paintings, signed letters and personal accessories also are available.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center in Rancho Mirage, California.
