Elizabeth Taylor's Jewelry Going on a Round-the-World Tour
Posted 06.29.11 by Mandy
"Big girls need big diamonds." Elizabeth Taylor said it and she would know, seeing as she had one of the most renowned jewelry collections in the world. According the the AP, Taylor's collection of jewelry, art, clothing, and more will be auctioned at Christie's in New York in December. Before the items are sold they are going on a round-the-world tour including stops in Moscow, London, Dubai, Geneva, Paris, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles. When they arrive in New York, Christie's will have a museum-quality exhibition to display the collection. The New York exhibit will run from December 3-10, with the auction being held December 13-16. The jewelry will be sold in three sessions from on December 13 and 14, so this would be a great opportunity to make someone very happy this Christmas.
A portion of the proceeds from the exhibition admissions and related publications will be donated to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
