The jewels of Elizabeth Taylor pulled out Tuesday night at a party auction marked by several historical records. By mid-evening, when the sale went on, the collection of Elizabeth Taylor had already become the most expensive private jewelry collection ever sold at auction with an insane total of $ 115.9 million.
The ‘peregrina”, a single pearl from the sixteenth century, was auctioned for $ 11.8 million, a record for a pearl jewelry sold at an auction. This gift from Richard Burton to Elizabeth Taylor was estimated at between two and three million dollars. And Elizabeth Taylor’s most famous ring , a 33.19 carats diamond, that the actress wore almost every day, was sold for $ 8.8 million, a world record for a colorless diamond.
