A Love Affair With Jewellery

01/08/2011

A note for diaries everywhere is the news from Christies New York that they will be hosting one of the most anticipated sales to come up for decades… the late Elizabeth Taylor’s jewels will be sold over two days; the most magnificent and important at a gala evening sale on 13th December and the main body of the collection on 14th December in two sessions.

The jewels comprise only part of a wider collection which is to be sold and events will run from 3rd – 16th December with sales in categories ranging from haute couture, memoribilia & costume, and the decorative arts. Christies will tour objects around the major capital cities, giving fans and collectors alike the opportunity to study and appreciate some of the wonderful objects which embellished her illustrious life.  Some proceeds will go to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, benefiting HIV&AIDS charities around the world.

Elizabeth Taylor’s love affair with jewellery is well documented and I am looking forward to learning more about the items which will come to market and the stories behind them. In a fitting tribute to a truly glittering career, this sale is sure to be an absolute blockbuster.
