Elizabeth Taylor was the inspiration for this look. She was crazy about jewels and even wrote a great book about it called: “My love affair with jewellery”. Besides being a world-famous actress and one of the most beautiful women who walked this earth, she was a woman who later in life devoted so much of her time and money to raising awareness to aids. Later in life Taylor was honored for services for her acting and charity, recognizing her fundraising for Aids research and was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
In the setting on the top and the Necklace you will find a clothing fragment worn by Elizabeth Taylor herself. There is a video made as proof of unsealing and cutting the fabric from the Panini Americana remnant card 22 236/499.
