Elizabeth Taylor collection to be auctioned

According to Christie’s auction house, the assets that belonged to the actresses, who died last month at the age of 79 after suffering congestive heart failure, will be sold in a series of auctions.

Details will be announced this spring.

Stephen Lash, chairman emeritus of Christie’s Americas, and Marc Porter, chairman of Christie’s Americas, collaborated with Liz Taylor and her family for two decades and according to Saturday’s statement are “most honored to have been entrusted with collection of this world renowned film legend, humanitarian and taste maker.”

Elizabeth Taylor was known for her love for diamonds, managing to amass a remarkable collection of jewelry during her eight marriages. In 2002 she released a book called Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry.
