Elizabeth Taylor - Elizabeth Taylor's Jewellery To Fetch $30 Million

Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery collection is expected to fetch more than $30 million (£18.8 million) when it is auctioned in December (11).
The late actress' collection of 300 pieces - including rings, earrings, necklaces, brooches and tiaras - will go under the hammer at Christie's auction house in New York.
Among the highlights hitting the auction block are the 33.19-carat Elizabeth Taylor Diamond; Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor's plume pin and La Peregrina, one of the largest pearls in the world, which Richard Burton gave Taylor in 1969 as a Valentine's Day gift.
Marc Porter, chairman and president of Christie's America, insists the sale will "captivate the auction world", adding, "This is without a doubt the greatest private collection of jewellery assembled in one place."
A portion of profits from the sale will reportedly benefit the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation.
