Remember when Vanderpump Rules season 10 was on the air, and in real-time, we all collectively lost our minds over Rachel Leviss snagging a lightning bolt necklace to represent her once electric connection to Tom Sandoval?

Well, Rachel (formerly known as Raquel) revealed that she’s auctioning off the jewelry piece in honor of World Mental Health Day on October 10. The reality TV personality took to her Instagram Stories to let fans know that she’s listing her 14K gold Caitlin Nicole necklace and a couple of hoodies—items which were at the center of #Scandoval—on eBay to raise money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

“I am currently in the process of letting go of things that no longer serve me,” she said in the clip. “As I was cleaning out my closet, I have found a few items that are a little bit triggering and I just don’t want to see them. I don’t want to have them in my possession. I will never wear them again. So, in honor of World Mental Health Day today, I am creating a fundraiser. All of the proceeds will go to NAMI, which the National Alliance on Mental Illness.”

The necklace’s highest bid is currently priced at $3,000 while her hoodies have raked up a bid of $8,200.

“I can’t rewrite history, but I can use something from my darkest days towards a good cause,” Rachel wrote on the official listing for the hoodies, including the “infamous three tone topaz on black TomTom hoodie” that she wore on day 3 of BravoCon. “[It’s] also the same style hoodie I boldly gave to Andy Cohen on WWHL the night everything blew up in my face. I added the black hoodie to the listing since it is more worn and not in pristine condition. The rhinestone TomTom hoodie is designed by Eddie Valentin.”

She added that the hoodies are missing a drawstring and a couple of rhinestones and that the necklace has noticeable scratches when it hits the light.

Rachel confirmed that the jewelry had ties to Tom during the third part of the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion. When host Andy Cohen asked if it had “the meaning we all think it does,” she confirmed she had bought it because it “was significant to who [Tom] became in my life.”

“This necklace was symbolic of my devotion to another person who I allowed to have power over me. He no longer does,” she wrote on the listing.

The necklace and hoodies are still currently listed on Rachel’s eBay account with 100% of the proceeds going to NAMI.
