Elizabeth Taylor’s Jewelry Collection Valued at $150 Million


“Good Morning America” took a look at Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry collection, reportedly valued at $150 million.

The icon once talked to Barbara Walters about her love for all-things-bling, explaining, “The beauty, the perfection, God’s workmanship. They’re all from the ground.”

Her affinity for gemstones began as a child and continued as she counted husbands.

Walters asked her if it was awkward for her new men to see their predecessor’s presents.  “So I’ve been told,” Liz remarked. What did she do about it? “Encourage them to give me more.”
