How does Prince, author of some of the sexiest rock songs known to mankind, declare his love to the woman he wants to marry? With notes written on pink heart-shaped paper, apparently.

Prince's first wife, Mayte Garcia, his ex-manager Owen Hunsey, and guitarist Dez Dickerson have put a huge chunk of Prince memorabilia up on the auction block with Nate D. Sanders Auctions, including those love notes and the engagement ring he gave Garcia, which you can grab for a cool $100,000. Bidding kicks off on Thursday.

Fans can get their hands on a whole trove of concert costumes and outfits worn by His Purpleness, including the scarf he wore on Muppets Tonight and a pair of bedazzled handcuffs. For those who are more music-oriented, the auction offers Prince's demo tape, and cassettes with three unreleased songs from 1978.

But maybe most amazingly, you can bid on a 50-piece set of Lenox china from Gayte and Prince's wedding, starting at just $50,000.

We all need a Prince-love-symbol emblazoned cup to sip our hot tea from.
