On this day we raise a glass to Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor, who would have turned 82 today. Taylor kicked off her 61-year-long career as a child star, appearing in the film There’s One Born Every Minute in 1942. The two-time Oscar-winning actress  always dared to dream big--and did just that. Case in point: her seven husbands (and eight marriages -- she divorced then re-married actor Richard Burton), 12 best-selling fragrances, 20 years worth of AIDS activism, and her prized jewelry, which was auctioned off at a whopping $115,932,000 following her death in 2011. "My mother says I didn’t open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring and I was hooked," Taylor has said. Relive the legend’s most memorable jewels here, starting with this diamond tiara from 1957.
