Elizabeth Taylor’s Engagement Ring, Jewels Exhibit
Bulgari Beverly Hills
310 858 9216
Think expensive Hollywood props when you see the eight signature pieces of jewelry once owned by actress Elizabeth Taylor.
The Bulgari pieces were “ reacquired “ by the exclusive jewelry establishment after Taylor’s death. The company spent millions of dollars at the 2011 Christie’s auction of the actresses jewelry.
Among the pieces are the engagement ring actor Richard Burton gave to Taylor and a brooch and necklace he also bought for her. The brooch and necklace each went for more than $6 million at Christie’s.
These will only be on display until March 10th. Appointments are recommended before you stop by.
