Liz Taylor: Jewelry Icon


When Liz Taylor passed away in 2011, the world lost a great actress and a tireless activist who was dedicated to championing AIDS research and related causes. It also lost a woman who is widely celebrated as a style icon; one who was wholeheartedly, utterly, and unabashedly in love with jewelry. When her jewelry collection was sold at auction by Christie’s after her death, it doubled the existing record for the sale of a single-owner jewelry collection, netting an astonishing $116,000,000. Among the extraordinary jewels on offer were La Peregrina, a natural pearl necklace with royal provenance that alone sold for $11,842,500. And who can forget the famous 33.19 carat Elizabeth Taylor diamond ring? It brought in a cool $8,818,500.

Let’s take a moment to admire the timeless style of this woman and icon.
