Elizabeth Taylor Jewels and Wedding Ring on Tour
The Queen of Diamonds, Elizabeth Taylor, was easily was one the greatest actresses of all time best known for her leading roles in Cleopatra, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Sadly, Liz departed this world earlier this year to join her bestie, Michael Jackson, in celeb rehab heaven.
Though the great gift of this woman (aside from her slew) of amazing Hollywood blockbusters, is the gift of her touring heirlooms navigating the country before they go up for auction at Christie’s this December.
This week sparked the American kick-off for the Diamond Queen’s tour of emeralds, rubies, movie memorabilia, and clothes galore.
On tour from Ms. Taylor’s estate aside from beautifully crafted statement jewels are the Elizabeth Taylor wedding ring and wedding dress from her marriage to Richard Burton (well, one of her marriages to him), couture clothing from Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and major fashion labels. These relics have been seen internationally by the likes of such cities as London, Dubai, and Hong Kong.
Be sure to check out Taylor’s beautiful heirlooms when and if they come to a city near you. Once they hit New York, they’ll be sold off to rich élite.
Who knows, maybe you can get your self a piece of the action. Also, a portion of the proceeds goes to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, a great cause that Elizabeth Taylor spent her life’s work dedicated to.
