  • "Taylor had a passion for jewelry. At her death, Taylor's jewelry collection was reportedly worth $150 million.[36][49]
  • Over the years she owned a number of well-known pieces, two of the most famous being the 33.19-carat (6.64 g) Krupp Diamond, which Taylor wore daily,[27] and the 69.42-carat (13.88 g) pear-shaped Taylor-Burton Diamond; both were among many gifts from husband Richard Burton. Taylor also owned the 50-carat (10 g) La Peregrina Pearl, purchased by Burton as a Valentine'sDay present in 1969, and formerly owned by Mary I of England.[50][51] Her collection of jewelry has been documented in her book My Love Affair with Jewelry (2002).
