Elizabeth Taylor auctions start with a bang!

The Elizabeth Taylor Collection auctions at Christie’s kicked off last night and will run through until Friday! If the first sale, consisting of Elizabeth Taylor’s prized jewelry, is anything to go by this is going to be a banner set of auctions for the house! All the big players in jewelry were represented included Bulgari, Van Cleef, Boucheron, Lorraine Schwartz and many more. The results were outstanding with multiple pieces selling for several million dollars! 

Next up it’s time for Taylor’s haute couture pieces and then on to ready to wear and fashion accessories. The sales will conclude on Friday with her film memorabilia. Elizabeth Taylor was the first American sweetheart and collectors will go to any lengths to secure these pieces for their collections. So if you’re a player, make sure you come to the auction with a fat wallet this week! No bargains to be had here!

View all sale results and lots to come here.
