Elizabeth Taylor Jewelry, Months after her death, Elizabeth Taylor is still making a big impact and her prized jewelry collection is coveted by many who were willing to pay the high price.
The actress’ infamous jewelry collection was auctioned off in New York on December 13 at Christie’s auction house for a record-setting $115 million.
The sum includes the $11.8 million paid for a pearl necklace and more than $8.8 million for a diamond ring given to her by Richard Burton, according to The Associated Press.
Part of the proceeds will go to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which she established in 1991 to help people living with AIDS.
Taylor amassed one of the foremost jewelry collections in the world, including a 33.19 carat diamond ring and a 16th century pear-shaped pearl from one of her seven husbands, Richard Burton. He purchased it for Taylor in 1969 as a Valentine’s Day gift.
