The Diamond Tiara

Style icon Elizabeth Taylor had an passion for wearing glamourous gems which was ignited in a famous story of romance by her third hubby Mike Todd; who crowned her “The Queen of Hollywood” with an extravagant and iconic gift of a Diamond Tiara. He said:

 

“You’re my queen, and I think you should have a tiara.”

 

“You’re my queen, and I think you should have a tiara.”

 

She wore it at everywhere - from high profile events such as the Academy Award,  Cannes film festival, to dinners, and also swimming, as the famous love Story continues  fabulous La Fiorentina villa. She was swimming around in her tiara when Mike came up to her, holding a jewellery box containing a sublime Burmese ruby and Cartier Diamond Bib Necklace: He handed her a bracelet to match and fastened it around her wrist.

 

'since there was no mirror I had to look into the water; the jewellery was so glorious, rippling red on blue, just like a painting. I just shrieked with joy and pulled Mike into the pool with me. How many women get a set of rubies just for doing something wholesome like swimming laps?'

 

 

Taylor’s collection of jewels sold at auction in 2011 for over 115 million dollars. The tiara sold  for $4,226,500
