The Iconic Blog, Live a Life Less Ordinary
  • Elizabeth Taylor Jewelry Auction

    December 17th, 2011

    Ms. Taylor is a glamazon after my own heart, so when I heard that her jewelry was going to be displayed here in NYC, I headed straight to Christie’s.

    Well let me tell you the collection did NOT disappoint. Pearls, emeralds and rubies the size of gumballs filled the cases. I was in HEAVEN.

    And yes and diamonds. There were LOTS of diamonds! I wish I had something to show you the scale of these pieces.

    I noticed that Liz had quite a thing for tassels. Countless pieces of her jewelry had some sort of tassel element. I DIE for those earrings!!

    Some fab gold tassels on a bracelet…

    And here are some stunning emerald pieces. Those pink and green earrings in the top left were amongst my most favorite.

    See what I mean? Those with a white jersey asymmetric maxi dress on the Island of Capri? Yes please!

    The exhibit also included a fabulous collection of black and white photos of Liz across the span of her career.

    Such a star. It really inspired me to further my current jewelry collection.

    And so I’ll leave you with this:

    “Big girls need big diamonds.”
