Liz Taylor necklaceJewelry from the 1950s-1970 is bold, colorful and extravagant. Elizabeth Taylor had amazing taste and a passion for important gemstones and avant garde design. She amassed one of the best collections of jewelry from the 20th century. This lecture will focus on the pieces in her collection from the latter part of the Golden Age of Hollywood when she was at the pinnacle of her career. As the majority of her collection was acquired as gifts from her husbands, this collection is truly a legacy of love.

This is a recording of a webinar previously held live on January 23, 2024.
