Photos: Liz Taylor's Bulgari Bling On Display For the First Time
It's well-documented that legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor loved her some fancy jewelry, and now the public is getting a chance to take a look at some of the late star's private collection of sparkly gems.
Taylor's eight-piece collection of Bulgari items will be put on display at the jeweler's new Beverly Hills boutique. The items will be revealed this week during "a Roman-themed evening, presented to pay homage to both glamorous 1960s Rome and Bulgari’s Italian heritage," according to Bulgari reps.
Here's what's in the collection:
Taylor’s first piece of Bulgari jewelry, an emerald and diamond En Tremblant brooch; the “Cleopatra Mirror,” a gold and turquoise encrusted mirror commissioned for Taylor, rumored to have been a gift for her 30th birthday; the “Taylor Burton fiancee ring;” a diamond brooch with a 23.44 octagonal step-cut diamond; an emerald and diamond necklace; a platinum sautoir with diamonds and sapphires; a Trombino ring that Taylor bought to compliment the platinum sautoir; and, lastly, one of Taylor’s most frequently worn pieces - a diamond and gold sautoir set with six ancient Roman coins.
And in case you were wondering, they are not for sale.
