Elizabeth Taylor’s Legacy Lives On

December was a busy month for the jewelry industry, and one of the highlights was Christie’s Elizabeth Taylor jewelry auction!  The auction set 7 world records and earned over $115M!

Taylor and her Bulgari Emerald & Diamond Necklace

One of our favorite pieces in Taylor’s collection is this dazzling Bulgari emerald and diamond necklace, a gift from fifth husband, Richard Burton in 1962. 

At the auction, Bulgari bought back the necklace for a whopping $6.1 million (six times Christie’s $1 million estimate!!).
