It was recently announced that Elizabeth Taylor´s amazing collection of jewelry is slated to be auctioned off at Christies in New York on December 13. Many come from high end jewelers such as Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany and Van Cleef & Arpels. Her passion for jewelry is apparent with her breathtaking 33.19-carat white diamond ring, which Elizabeth wore almost every day. This one piece alone has a value of $2.5 to $3.5 million.
Another sought after item is a 16th century pear-shaped pearl, La Peregrina, which was once part of the Spanish crown jewels. The fabulous pearls were given to Elizabeth by Richard Burton in 1969 as a Valentines ´gift.
The entire collection of 269 pieces is predicted to sell at an estimate of $30 million upwards to $100 million.
Now this may be out of reach for most to consider in participating in the auction of the decade, but prior to that, in September, Elizabeth Taylor´s collection will go on tour. Viewers can stop in at Christies in New York, Moscow, Geneva, Hong Kong and others.
A portion of the proceeds of all sales will benefit Elizabeth´s founded on 1981 charity, the Aids Foundation. Even after her death, the fashion icon and Hollywood star is committed to a legacy of humanitarian causes.
The lady loved thing larger when it came to jewels and always went for the celebrated beyond the practical. Looking through an archive of photos, she always kept a designer handbag at her side.
