The 115 million dollar question

Q. What makes $115 million at auction?

Am sure some of you will have seen this in today’s news & know the answer;

A. Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery.

WOW! That’s a lot of bling & a lot of $’s and I was curious about where all those millions would end up and decided to ‘google-gate’ – investigate via google.  The first headline I read as $15 million, then I looked again and saw the extra 1, $115 million, wow!

Taylor herself was known to have felt that she was “only the custodian of my jewelry. When I die and they go off to auction I hope whoever buys them gives them a really good home.”

I was happy to learn that part of the proceeds will go to The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation, which she established in 1991.

We hope whoever the new custodians are that the jewels will continue to be worn, loved and admired.
