Elizabeth Taylor's Jewellery Auction - Part 2

Part 2 of our look at the Elizabeth Taylor jewellery to be auctioned by Christie's

The Cartier ruby and diamond necklace Elizabeth received from Mike Todd while expecting their daughter, Liza.

Made by Cartier, this necklace has baguette cut diamonds with 7 oval cushion cut rubies. All are mounted in platinum and 18k gold. At just 14 inches in length, it is meant to sit at the base of your throat.

Estimated at $200,000 - $300.000The matching earrings are set with 3 oval cushion cut rubies and baguette cut diamonds in platinum and 18k settings.

Estimated $80,000-$120,000

To complete the set - a ruby and diamond bracelet. Ten oval cushion cut rubies and round cut diamonds in platinum and 18k gold. The bracelet is 6½ inches in length.

Estimated $150,000-$200,000

Not belonging to this set but would be a nice addition

A Christmas gift from Richard Burton, this oval cut ruby is approximately 8.24 carats set in a circle of round cut diamonds. The shoulders are set with small round diamonds. The unusual part of this ring is that the diamonds are actually set with yellow gold claws. Usually the claws are tipped with white gold or platinum so that the diamonds don't pick up the yellow colour.

Estimated $1,000,000-$1,500,000

Success is a great deodorant.
