Prior to being auctioned, all of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery is going on a world-wide tour, along with a selection of her clothing and art work. The 33.19 karat Krupp diamond, given to her by Richard Burton, is likely to be the star of the show. Taylor delighted in letting others try on the stupendous piece (how I wish I could have!). On tour everything is, not surprisingly, behind glass.
You can see an interesting video news story on the tour and some of the featured pieces, including this ring, here. It will be auctioned by Christie’s; just for reference, Burton paid $305,000 for it in 1968.
