Elizabeth Taylor jewellery auction tells story of life and loves

 

 

A simple and yet elegant jewellery auction of Elizabeth Taylor tells her story of love and life. From the colourful and couture frocks worn during her two weddings with actor Richard Burton, to a glamorous ruby and diamond Cartier jewerly set, a gift from her 3rd husband, film producer Mike Todd, “The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor” on display at Christie’s auction house in New York tells a wonderful story, spanning seven husbands and nearly five decades.

The actress Elizabeth Taylor’s world renowned collection of jewellery will now be auction off in December which is expected to realize more than $30 million profit, a report confirmed this Wednesday.

Apparently, the December 13-14 sale will follow a global three-month tour that will also include Elizabeth Taylor’s couture, fine art and memorabilia, and will be the first of a series of auctions from the estate of the legendary film star who died in March.

In addition, some 269 diamonds, pearls, rubies, rings, necklaces and even a tiara will be sold, with several of the most valuable, and storied pieces tied to Elizabeth Taylor’s lengthy and complicated relationship with Richard Burton, whom she married twice and divorced twice.

Patrons of the exhibition, which runs through Dec. 12, will certainly flock to one of Taylor’s most prized possessions — a 33.19-carat, emerald cut diamond ring. The estimated worth of the gift Burton gave her in 1968 is $2.5 million to $3.5 million.

Other tokens from admirers include jewelry and an autographed poster from Taylor’s cherished friend, Michael Jackson. The 1987 print is signed “To my true love Elizabeth. I love you forever.”
