Tag Archives: Christie’s Elizabeth Taylor Auction

High-End Christmas Gift #3

After buying that gorgeous solid gold Christmas tree, what can you put under it? Anything from Christie’s Elizabeth Taylor auction that begins tomorrow.  More than 2,000 of Taylor’s belongings will be up for sale.

Taylor who died in March was married eight times, twice to actor Richard Burton. Her husbands were very generous. A ruby and diamond Cartier set, from hubby #3, film producer Mike Todd, is worth between $2 and $3 million.  A pearl and diamond necklace with the most perfect and largest natural pearl drop that’s in private hands is also up for sale. Then there’s the Elizabeth Taylor 33 carat diamond that Richard Burton bought for $300,000 in 1968 might set you back $3 million. Taylor’s clothes, accessories, artwork and memorabilia will also be on the block. 

If you can’t afford those items there’s an online auction including costume jewelry, fine jewelry, and personal items and memorabilia some of which begin at $100.  To view the entire collection or to register for the online auction, go to
