Elizabeth Taylor's famous jewels and threads are set to be auctioned off to some really rich people this December, but for four days this October they will be on display for you to gawk and admire in West Hollywood.

Starting tomorrow at 9 a.m., Christie's website will crash begin selling $20 tickets for the four-day exhibition that begins on October 13 in West Hollywood. The museum will be the first stop for the collection, which will head on to Dubai, Hong Kong and London. Proceeds go to the The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

If you're too slow on the draw for tickets tomorrow, the Associated Press has pictures of the jewels here.
