Elizabeth Taylor's Multiple Million Jewelry Collection

The late great Elizabeth Taylor was known for her extravagant glamour and left behind an amazing jewelry collection of diamonds and pearls.

Her famous collection is currently on a world tour and is valued in excess of $30 million!
Keith Penton, head of the jewelry department at Christie's in London, said that Taylor's taste in jewels was "extraordinarily refined. She really understood her gemstones ([and)she had a passion for design and workmanship, quite a rare combination."

Elizabeth loved her jewelry so much that her 2002 memoir was titled ' My Love Affair with Jewlery'. In which she truly expresses her love for her jewelry stating:
"I never, never thought of my jewelry as trophies. I’m here to take care of them and to love them. When I die and they go off to auction I hope whoever buys them gives them a really good home.”

The auction is happening on Wednesday 14th December at Christie's in New York.
