Elizabeth Taylor Estate to be Auctioned on December 13

On December 13, Christie’s will begin their high-profile auction of Elizabeth Taylor’s estate, including 269 pieces of jewelry and 400 pieces of clothing. Highlights include the 33-carat diamond ring that Richard Burton gave her in 1968 and the silk wedding dress she wore to her (first) wedding to Richard Burton. I want these diamond chandelier earrings that were given to her by Mike Todd BAD. Apparently she bought the antique originals, which were just paste, in Paris for herself, but Mike Todd has them made in real diamonds for her. In Christie’s publicity video below, the clothing begins at the 6 minute mark but don’t miss the impressive collection of gems that kicks it off.
