London: Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s personal possessions, including a diamond necklace, will be sold in an online auction.
Some 950 of the star’s more affordable personal belongings are to be sold over the internet in an auction between December 3 and 17. They include an art deco bracelet expected to go for around 63 pound and a white and gold diamond necklace which will fetch 9,000 pound, the Daily Mail reported.
Other items include a Bulgari cuff, custom made black cowboy boots, a black Lanvin shoulder bag and a multi-coloured Oscar de la Renta gown. They will be placed into one of four categories – fine jewellery, fashion and accessories, costume jewellery and decorative arts and memorabilia – and will be featured on the website for auction house Christie’s from Friday.
Another piece in the online sale is a green linen embroidered kaftan that Taylor wore to publisher Malcolm Forbes’s 70th birthday party in Morocco. Other pieces for sale include 22 handbags by Dior and Valentino, 500 pieces of fine and costume jewellery and 400 more designer fashion items.
The auction is part of a wider sale of Taylor’s belongings which will take place in New York from December 13.
That will include the 33.19-carat Elizabeth Taylor Diamond which was given to the actress by her husband Richard Burton. (PTI)
