The Taylor-Burton Diamond, 1969
Her most famous gem was a 69.42-carat pear-shaped diamond that Burton purchased at auction for over $1 million. It was originally set in a ring. "But even for me it was too big," Taylor said. "So we had Cartier design a necklace." She wore the new design to the Academy Awards in 1970.
The pearl necklace known as "La Peregrina" was a gift from Richard Burton. It sold for nearly 12 million dollars by auction house Christie's and will help benefit the AIDS foundation Ms. Taylor founded.
