We’ve highlighted Elizabeth Taylor’s fine jewelry in the past. Now, you could have the chance to see it firsthand, as the pieces are toured around the world. I’m sure Liz would be pleased!
New York–Auction house Christie’s has planned an international, three-month tour of highlights from the Elizabeth Taylor collection, including pieces of her jewelry, which will begin in September and include stops in Moscow, London, Los Angeles, Dubai, Paris and Hong Kong.
The tour will culminate in New York in early December with a ten-day, museum-quality exhibition of Taylor’s jewelry, fashion accessories, decorative arts and memorabilia, followed by four consecutive days of auctions.
Taylor’s jewelry will be auctioned Dec. 13 and 14 and include pieces from top design houses as well as the actress’s most elaborate custom-designed jewels.
A portion of the proceeds generated by exhibitions admissions, events and publications related to the sales will be donated to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF). Founded in 1991, ETAF provides funding to AIDS service organizations throughout the world to assist those living with HIV and AIDS.
Estimates and specifics of auction items will be available in early fall.
