Elizabeth Taylor was a remarkable woman both on the big screen and in her personal life. While we won’t venture too deep in the latter, we can’t ignore her impressive jewellery collection. The two most impressive pieces of this collection are the Krupp diamond and the Taylor-Burton diamond.
The Taylor-Burton is named after both Elizabeth Taylor herself and her husband Richard Burton who purchased this precious stone in 1969. The original rough diamond was discovered three years earlier in South-Africa weighing an impressive 241 carats.
