Her jewellery was ‘legendary’, containing some of the most famous stones, such as the 69.42-carat Taylor-Burton diamond, 33-carat Krupp Diamond, and La Peregrina Pearl.
Elizabeth knew each one of her jewels intimately, being able to tell the origin of the gem.
She believed that jewels never belong exclusively to the owners, but instead they act as ‘“custodians, here to enjoy them, to give them the best treatment in the world, to watch after their safety and to love them.”’ Therefore, it is fitting that her jewellery be auctioned off ready to find new ‘custodians’.
If the big ‘bling’ diamonds don’t do it for you, then why not opt for the timeless elegance of the subtle pearl.
Pearls are the perfect, timeless symbol of style. Down the centuries we have seen how pearls have been favoured by many style icons, Cleopatra, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqui Kennedy, Princess Diana and Anna Wintour.
Why don’t you become a ‘custodian’ of pearl jewellery today?!
