Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor certainly immortalised the phrase ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’. Whilst the actress will always be remembered for her iconic performances in great Hollywood classics such as Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1958), The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954) and Cleopatra (1963), Taylor’s legacy surpasses her acting career. Today, we are remembering Elizabeth Taylor as the Queen of diamonds. Over her eight marriages, Elizabeth collected millions of pounds worth of diamonds. From Cartier to Bulgari, discover the amazing jewels owned and loved by Elizabeth Taylor.

Eddie Fisher and the diamond cuff
After Todd’s death, Elizabeth Taylor began a love affair with his best friend Eddie Fisher. What do you use to propose to the Queen of the diamond engagement ring? A diamond bracelet, of course. The bracelet consisted of 50 white diamonds, weighing an incredible 40-carats. A bold statement for a scandalous love affair. Perhaps saying it with diamonds should be my 2019 mantra.
The only Italian word she knew was ‘Bulgari’
Richard Burton was considered Elizabeth Taylor’s great love - and who can forget the incredible Bulgari emerald set he gifted the starlet? Burton famously proposed with this Bulgari emerald set, consisting of a 18.61-carat emerald pendant encrusted with diamonds (which can be detached and worn as a brooch), a set of emerald drop earrings and a dazzling emerald bracelet. The whole set totals approximately $15 million. Taylor wrote of how Burton loved to shower her in jewels. The couple would take afternoon strolls to the jewellers so he could purchase her an array of gorgeous jewellery. Five years into their marriage, Burton bought Taylor the Krupp diamond - a 33.19-carat Harry Winston diamond ring, now known as the Elizabeth Taylor Diamond.
