Collection tour will begin in September with a stop-off in London.
Auction house Christie’s has arranged a three-month tour of jewellery owned by legendary film star and jewellery collector Elizabeth Taylor.
Beginning in September, the tour includes stops London, Los Angeles, Moscow, Dubai, Geneva, Paris and Hong Kong. It will culminate in New York City in early December with a 10-day exhibition of Taylor’s jewellery, fashion, accessories, decorative arts, and memorabilia.
The exhibition will be followed by four days of auctions, commencing with the auction of Taylor’s jewellery.
Proceeds from the sales generated by the exhibition admission, events, and publications related to the sales will be donated to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
The auctions will begin on December 13 with an evening sale of pieces entitled Legendary Jewels. Other sales will focus on Taylor’s clothing, including haute couture and fashion pieces, and a later film costume, art and film memorabilia auction.
