A collection of the late Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry and dresses is on display in Moscow this week. The memorial exhibition is the first stop of a three-month global tour ahead of an auction scheduled for New York in December. The only stop in East Asia is Hongkong.
The exhibition includes a total of nineteen pieces of Taylor's jewelry, such as a sapphire and diamond brooch estimated at 1.5 to two million US dollars. Christie's auction house currently has the collection on display in Moscow. Elizabeth Taylor was a renowned Oscar-winning actress during Hollywood's "Golden Age." She died of congestive heart failure at the age of 79 in March of this year.
