Liz Taylor's Jewelry Up for Sale Online
Nov 16, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Elizabeth Taylor's fabled, multi-million jewelry collection is being put up for sale in a three-day auction by Christies, but in addition, the legendary star's baubles and bits will be available during a special online sale from December 3-17.
Over 950 pieces of fine and costume jewelry, accessories, and decorative objects will be available for perusal and possible purchase -- from Chanel, Christian Dior, and Cartier jewels; to handbags and shoes from Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Prada. Though of course that's just the tip of the diamond-encrusted iceberg.
The full collection goes on view November 18, but a preview is available through Christies and e-tailer Moda Operandi. Then come Decmber 3, interested parties can begin to register for the auction itself.
So this holiday season, show that you really care with a gift from the vaults of Hollywood royalty. And instead of wrapping said gift and placing it under the tree -- storm into the room Christmas morning, rip off a pair of diamond earrings, plunk them in front of the giftee and breathlessly say, "These have always brought me luck." Then clutch your figurative pearls and disappear as mysteriously as you came. It's what Liz would have wanted. [Hint Mag]
