A rare collection of Elizabeth Taylor‘s favorite Bvlgari pieces will be displayed for the fist time ever.
The haute jeweler is hosting a Roman-themed celebration to unveil the eight-piece collection of baubles in homage to glamorous 1960s Rome and the brand’s Italian heritage.
The display, which will be housed in the new Bulgari Beverly Hills boutique, will include pieces from the filming of Cleopatra to pieces worn while accepting her many philanthropic award nominations and wins.
The exhibition includes Taylor’s first piece of Bulgari jewelry, an emerald and diamond En Tremblant brooch, the “Cleopatra Mirror,” the Taylor Burton fianceìe ring, a diamond brooch with a 23.44 octagonal step-cut diamond, an emerald and diamond necklace; a platinum sautoir with diamonds and sapphires; a Trombino ring that Taylor bought to compliment the platinum sautoir; and, lastly, one of Taylor’s most frequently worn pieces – a diamond and gold sautoir set with six ancient Roman coins.
The exhibit will be on display this week, the week of the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
