Considered one of the most beautiful women of the world.
Elizabeth Taylor - February 27, 1932 - March 23, 2011
Often married, infamous for breaking up a marriage for a great love, Elizabeth Taylor lived life to the fullest in many ways. Her passing this year has brought renewed interest in her life and loves, but one area in particular has drawn international attention. Her extensive jewellery collection, estimated at $30 million. Christie's will be auctioning off her jewellery in New York this December, but in the meantime the collection will be making its way around on an eight-city tour. (Dubai, Geneva, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Moscow and Paris)
What strikes me about this collection is the meaning behind so much of it. She received pieces to commemorate big moments and loves in her life and let's face it there were a lot. Here are a few of the most memorable.
