She amassed an incredible assortment of jewels in her lifetime; one of the most famous pieces in her collection included La Peregrina, a 16th-century pearl, once owned by Mary Tudor. “I feel as though I’m only the custodian of my jewellery,” she remarked in her book Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair With Jewelry. “When I die and they go off to auction, I hope whoever buys them gives them a really good home.”
Glamour, red-carpet worthy, larger-than-life, bold, colourful.
