3 Unique Pieces From Elizabeth Taylor's Jewellery Collection

Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery collection was one of the greatest in the world. She adored Bulgari. According to the man she married twice, Cleopatra co-star Richard Burton, it was the only word she knew in Italian.

The actress once said, “Undeniably, one of the biggest advantages to working on Cleopatra in Rome was Bulgari’s nice little shop. I used to visit Gianni Bulgari in the afternoons and we’d sit in what he called the money room and swap stories.”

In 2011, Taylor’s collection went to auction through Christie’s, achieving US$144 million, the most valuable sale of luxury jewellery in history. Check out three unique pieces from the collection in the gallery:

This Bulgari gourmette sautoir in gold with six Byzantine gold coins and diamonds was one of Taylor’s favourite pieces.

This emerald and diamond brooch, which can be worn as a headpiece, was a gift from Taylor's fourth husband, actor and singer Eddie Fisher.

Taylor received this Bulgari emerald necklace as a wedding gift from her fifth husband Richard Burton when they married in 1964.
