#2. She had the most expensive jewelry collection
Some of the most famous pieces from her collection are 33.19-carat Krupp Diamond, the 69.42-carat Taylor – Burton Diamond and the 50 – carat La Peregrina Pearl. Her third husband Mike Todd gave her a diamond tiara that she first wore at the Academy Awards in 1957, but she was also seen swimming in the pool with it as well. He also gave her Cartier diamond and ruby set. Her other husband Richard Burton also gifted her with many expensive jewelry just because “it was a beautiful day” or “let’s go for a walk” day. Her husbands kept on gifting her with madly expensive earrings, necklaces, brooches and bracelets and she herself as well contributed to making a collection of 1,778 pieces of jewelry that were sold for more than $150 million at Christie’s Action after Elizabeth’s death.
