The Elizabeth Taylor Art Auction
Elizabeth Taylor Art Auction – With the recent tour and art auction of Ms. Elizabeth Taylor‘s beautiful gems and jewels comes some serious buyers, who had to have their hands or fingers on a piece of the icon’s overly-gaudy collection.
But, who could possibly afford the slew of precious stones once sported by the original Cleopatra? For starters, Real Housewife of New York, Jill Zarin, has been showing off her serious bling.
The $19,000 aquamarine ring surrounded by Taylor’s iconic emblem, snakes, was shown all around the town as Zarin flaunted her flailing finger adorned with her new treasure. One might ask, how did a housewife land such a precious gift from the epitome of class, diamonds, and fierce fashion. Well, according to Zarin, the ring was a gift purchased from Christie’s by Jill Zarin’s husband, Bobby Zarin, owner of Zarin Fabrics.
The monumental auction ended in a total sale of $137 million, which fetched collectors, celebutants, and housewives alike to get their paws on one of the Queen of Diamonds’s statement pieces. Other than Zarin, Kim Kardashian made some absorbent purchases at the auction as well. One can only imagine what kind of glimmering gems, the short-lived, newly-divorced reality star took home on her way back to the Dash Store.
