Legendary jewelry collection of unforgettable Elizabeth Taylor was sold at auction for a record 116 million dollars. 80 pieces of jewelry with precious stones achieved a world record for the most expensive private jewelry collection.

Although it was estimated that the impressive collection will be sold for $ 20 million, the final cost several times exceeded the expectations of experts. Since the middle of the auction collection of Taylor surpassed the previous world record for individual jewelry collection, set in 1987 when the collection Duchess of Windsor was sold for more than $ 50 million.

The highest price reached necklace "La Peregrina", made ​​of rubies, pearls and diamonds, which the center has a large pearl in the form of pear found in the 16th century. Necklace, sold for 11.8 million dollars, was her gift to Elizabeth by her husband Richard Burton. The final price set a new world record for the most expensive piece of jewelry from pearls.

I had to go back and read the title of this thread after your post. I guess the work gift makes this a post that fits in.
