Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery for sale.

Post by annis » Fri September 9th, 2011, 2:25 am

What a bling-fest this will be! Elizabeth Taylor's famous jewellery is up for grabs if anyone has a spare mill or two.

"Actress Elizabeth Taylor's world-renowned collection of jewellery will be auctioned in December at a two-day sale that is expected to realize more than $30 million (NZ$36m), Christie's said.

The December 13-14 sale will follow a global three-month tour that will also include 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.

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 Taylor's lengthy and complicated relationship with Richard Burton, whom she married twice and divorced twice."
