Celebrities eye Elizabeth Tayor jewels

So the saying goes, Diamonds are forever. And that's certainly the case with Elizabeth Taylor's most iconic jewels, which have gone on display in Beverly Hills. The priceless pieces were made by Bulgari at the height of Taylor's career. Sabina Belli is with Bulgari. SOUNDBITE: (English) SABINA BELLI, BULGARI EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, SAYING: "I would say the most iconic necklace of her collection, which is this layout of 16 octagonal-shaped emeralds and diamonds that is also combined with a removable pendant that can become a brooch, that actually Elizabeth Taylor wore for her wedding in Montreal." Taylor married eight times, but that wedding to Richard Burton in 1964 is remembered best, especially by celebrities like Kirsten Dunst and Drew Barrymore who came to see his gifts. SOUNDBITE: (English) KIRSTEN DUNST, ACTRESS AND BULGARI AMBASSADOR, SAYING: "Richard Burton really got her some beautiful jewelry. She has good taste in men, for sure." SOUNDBITE: (English) DREW BARRYMORE, ACTRESS, SAYING: "I think it's just amazing to see what she, personally, and Richard Burton curated for their lives. I think it's about seeing a moment where they responded to something and purchased it. I'm so curious as to what made their pupils dilate." Taylor died in 2011 aged 79. Her gems were auctioned for $116 million. Bulgari recently aquired some of them, meaning her memory and expensive tastes live on.
