Elizabeth Taylor's Love Affair with Jewellery

When I asked some of my jewel-addicted friends about the one book they treasured most I got just one name: 'Elizabeth Taylor - My Love Affair with Jewellery'. "Here, in my own words and as I remember them, are my cherished stories about a lifetime of fun and love and laughter... I've never thought of my jewellery as trophies. I'm here to take care of it and to love it for we are only temporary custodians of beauty" pens Elizabeth Taylor. Celebrated for her beauty and stunning jewellery collection that included priceless pieces from jewellers as Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, Chopard and Tiffany... Elizabeth Taylor treats us to some never-seen-before photographs of the jewellery that she loved so much... Let's take a look at some of the precious pieces she possessed!

The La Peregrina Pearl was once the Spanish Crown Jewel owned by Napoleon Bonaparte before it was gifted to her by Richard Burton.
 
Brought by Richard Burton for $1.1 million, the diamond weighs 69 carats and was the most expansive, largest and beautiful diamond in the world!
 
Mounted in a ring, the Krupp diamond weighing 33.19 carats features the gorgeous Asscher cuttings.
 
The Taj Mahal Diamond was formerly owned by Queen Mumtaz, given to her by Emperor Shah Jahan

“I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.” @Naresh- where can one get to see her jewellery in Jaipur?
