Elizabeth Tayor Jewelry Auction

As you may or may not have heard, Elizabeth Taylor’s famous jewelry collection has been auctioned at Christie’s. Soaring prices made it one of the most valuable private collections ever auctioned off before. I felt it was only befitting then to make my first jewelry post about Elizabeth Taylor’s love of jewelry. Jewelry can make any look glamorous, when done tastefully.  I like the fact that Elizabeth Taylor dripped in her diamonds and tiaras. Gaudy and somewhat tacky at times…I suppose, but who wouldn’t love to go out in public like that just once. Elizabeth Taylor felt that her pieces were to be loved and cherished. That she was only the contemporary holder until the next owner came along to take care of that piece. The fact that she wore a tiara and had the ability to pull it off speaks volumes of Elizabeth Taylor’s glamour. My personal opinion is that tiaras are just for royalty. However, having seen the pictures of her wearing them I’d include Miss Taylor in that category too.
