Elizabeth Taylor Jewelry: Taylor-Burton Diamond, Krupp Diamond, Bulgari Emerald Suite
The Cartier ruby suite
This was given to Elizabeth by Mike Todd, her third husband. Their marriage ended with her tragic death in a plane crash in 1958.
He gifted Elizabeth with one of his favorite items, the Cartier Ruby Suite, which consisted of a tiara, necklace, bracelet and earrings.
Writing about when he gave her the gift, Elizabeth wrote, “I went out and put my arms around him, and he said, ‘Wait a minute, don’t move your tiara.’ Because I was wearing the tiara he bought me in the pool!
“He was holding a red leather box and inside was a ruby and diamond bib necklace that glistened in the warm light. It was like the sun, illuminated and made of red light.
“First Mike put it around my neck and smiled. Then he leaned over and put some matching earrings on me. Next comes the bracelet.
“Since there was no mirror around, I had to look into the water. The jewelry was beautiful, swirling red on blue like a painting. I screamed in joy, put my arms around Mike’s neck and pulled him into the pool after me. It was a perfect summer day and a perfect love day.
