Elizabeth Taylor died Wednesday at age 79 due to congestive heart failure. I don't really know all that much about Elizabeth Taylor other than she married 8 times, divorced 7 and widowed once, had a perfume line (White Diamonds which my mother still loves) and was an actress. After googling her I learned she was a huge jewelry collector and my jaw dropped as I saw all the jewelry she has sported and owned. I had no idea she was such a humanitarian too, she spent a lot of time raising money for fight against AIDS. She was a dear friend to Michael Jackson and gave him a 4 ton elephant once to add to Neverland.
Let's take a look at some pics to admire & remember her:
In 1968 Richard Burton gave Taylor The Krupp Diamond, a 33.19ct Asscher Cut flanked with Tapered Diamonds. It's said to likely be the most perfect diamond in the world. Besides the round cut, it is my absolute favorite cut in the world!
with Princess Diana
I know my mother loved Elizabeth Taylor and she has a photo at the beach posed exactly like Elizabeth.
