While Elizabeth Taylor’s legendary jewelry collection included many multi-million dollar designs, the actress also amassed all kinds of gorgeous pieces for far less than seven figures—and many of them are going up for auction online starting tomorrow. From December 3rd through December 17th, christies.com will put 621 jewels from her estate up for bidding online without a reserve—which means no starting price point, making them potentially within reach for Taylor fans on almost any budget. The online sale includes pieces from big designers names Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, as well as some of the best designers working today, Stephen Webster, Loree Rodkin, Stephen Dweck and Me & Ro. Many of these designer items are not fully described in the sale materials, though we have confirmed the identity of designers and added several of the background stories here. See our 25 favorite pieces in the gallery now.
