The Elizabeth Taylor Exhibition at Christies: The Ultimate in On Line Shopping

Posted on Dec 5, 2011

The collection comprises fashion, paintings, glass, AND an amazing collection of fabulous jewelry! Allow about an hour and a half to see the exhibition at a minimum. Even with timed tickets, the crowds move slowly mainly because the signage is placed in difficult locations and challenging to read easily. What is most amazing is to see this collection amassed through private rather than royal wealth. Elizabeth Taylor kept this significant collection as memories for herself. Now, the proceeds of the sale will benefit  so many others. What a true legacy to leave to be able to help so many others!

The designer gowns, shoes, handbags, jewelry and artwork  are displayed by lot so that you can correlate it to the catalogue quickly.  What is most amazing is to see this collection amassed through private rather than royal wealth.

What a true legacy to leave to be able to help so many others!What is staggering is the jewelry collection was created by private wealth and rivals royal collections. The pieces were presented to Elizabeth by her 7 husbands and several magnificent pieces were gifts from Michael Jackson.  Now, the proceeds of the sale will benefit so many others.  What a true legacy to leave to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

It’s hard to believe that she saved so many clothes, handbags and shoes. The jewelry is stunning and the notations about who gave them to her, when and why, make it a walk down memory lane for all of us over a certain age.
