The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor

The Collection of Elizabeth Collection 
has arrived New York City

"I feel very adventurous. 
There are so many doors to be opened, 
and I'm not afraid to look behind them."

 Elizabeth Taylor

She's like an eclipse of the sun,
blotting out everyone.
Sam Marks, Producer, MGM

Cartier Ruby and Diamond suite 
and Van Cleef & Arpels Ruby and Diamond ring

The Cartier pieces were given to Taylor by Mike Todd
and the 8.24-carat ruby and diamond ring was a gift 
from Richard Burton
The Mike Todd Diamond Tiara
A gift from the film director and worn by Taylor 
when Todd’s film Around the World in 80 Days 
won the Oscar for Best Picture.

So much to do, so little done, such things to be.

I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. 
You can't possess radiance, you can only admire it.
- Elizabeth Taylor

Wedding Dress for First Marriage to Richard Burton
The yellow dress is backed by a photograph of the couple
at their first wedding in 1964.

I might run from her for a thousand years and 
she is still my baby child. 
Our love is so furious that we burn each other out.
- Richard Burton -

Elizabeth Taylor had an extraordinary life and is considered the very last of the great movie Stars from the Hollywood's Golden Age.
Miss Taylor has played many roles in her life: We first knew of her as an international film and fashion star. But she was also a loving mother, a successful businesswoman and a brave and generous humanitarian who fought for those living with HIV/Aids.

She has left a legacy that is truly iconic.
