A collection of late actress Elizabeth Taylor's personal items, including jewelry, cocktail dresses and film costumes, will go under the hammer in Beverly Hills, California, Julien's Auctions said on Tuesday.
The collection, which comes from an unidentified former employee of Taylor, will first go on display in Ireland on Tuesday and will hit the auction block on October 12.
The top item, an 18-karat gold, multi-gem earring and necklace set, is expected to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000. The necklace and earrings set include multiple topaz, diamond, peridot and citrine gemstones.
Taylor, who died in 2011 at the age of 79, epitomized Hollywood glamour from its golden age with her love of diamonds, her violet eyes and a tumultuous love life that included eight marriages, two of them to Welsh actor Richard Burton. More»
