"I don't pretend to be an ordinary housewife," Elizabeth Taylor once confessed, and her seven husbands certainly didn't treat her like one. Over the years they showered her with jewels, which became some of her most prized possessions. This Fall, Christie's will present a public exhibition and eventually auction off Elizabeth Taylor's jewels, many given to her by her twice-husband Richard Burton - including the infamous "Elizabeth Taylor Diamond."
While she's remembered for her acting, men, and charity work, Elizabeth Taylor will always be associated with diamonds and opulent jewels. Let's take a look at some of her collection, estimated at a total of $30 million, soon to be up for auction and the love stories behind them.
