Bulgari Fetes Elizabeth Taylor Collection

Just in time for the Oscars this Sunday, Bulgari celebrates its recently acquired jewelry from Elizabeth Taylor’s extraordinary collection, perhaps the most praised collection of jewelry that caused quite a stir in 2011 when Christie’s auctioned her magnificent jewels.

One of the main highlights of the collection is the record-breaking 23.44 carat emerald brooch which Taylor wore to marry Richard Burton in 1964: the brooch set the world record for an emerald sold at auction with a final sale price of more than $6.5 million, or $280,000 per carat.
