Elizabeth Taylor's lifelong collection of jewellery is set to be auctioned at Christie's in New York this December. Her stunning pieces are expected to sell for a staggering £20 million but you can get the classic Elizabeth Taylor look here at QVC with our own versions of the actresses prized jewels…
Taylor's love affair with jewellery was world renowned and the late actress expressed her wish for her cherished pieces to be auctioned off for charity. Made up largely of gifts from her seven different husbands, Taylor collected over 300 pieces of jewellery throughout her life, pieces that reminded her of happy memories and which represented the milestones in her life.
Taylor was famously married twice to Richard Burton so it's no surprise that she received some stunning pieces of jewellery during their relationship. At auction the aptly named Taylor-Burton necklace is estimated to fetch £1.5 million, as is a ruby and diamond ring which was given to Elizabeth by Burton for Christmas.
Like Elizabeth, you can sparkle with the stunning Diamonique Glamour Pear Cut Drop Necklace and Diamonique By Charlie Lapson Cluster Ring - two silver pear-drop shaped pieces that perfectly complement each other when worn together.
Elizabeth also had some beautiful emerald pieces within her collection. For similar Hollywood glamour you should look no further then the Pompoos Green Glass Cabouchon & Crystal Ring, an eye-catching ring set with a large green cabochon stone, and the Diamonique Indulgence Peardrop Earrings, perfect for adding a splash of colour to any night time look.
Finally, one of the most exciting pieces to be auctioned is Elizabeth's favorite item of jewellery; her Krupps ring, estimated to sell for a whopping £3.5 million. You can achieve a similar, eye-catching look with the Diamonique Emerald Cut Cocktail Ring, ideal for a glam, glittering look.
