December 13, 2011 by staff
Elizabeth Taylor $30m Of Gems, There was jewellery for the eight wedding days, the numerous film premieres, the table tennis victories and of course Tuesdays. Who among us does not get an ‘it’s Tuesday and I love you’ gift?
The woman who certainly did was Elizabeth Taylor and it helped her build up one of the most remarkable and dazzling private collections of jewellery ever created.
Following her death in March aged 79, Christie’s announced on Wednesday it is to sell nearly 300 of the star’s jewels over two sessions in New York. There will be diamonds, pearls, emeralds, rubies and sapphires; rings, earrings, necklaces, brooches, tiaras and more in a sale expected to make over $30m (£19m).
The chairman and president of Christie’s America, Marc Porter, said the sale promised “to captivate the auction world”. He added: “This is without a doubt the greatest private collection of jewellery assembled in one place.”
Taylor’s obsession with jewellery is well-chronicled. Her twice-husband Richard Burton said: “I introduced Liz to beer, and she introduced me to Bulgari.”
