Crown jewels? How could I not love this commercial?
The crown jewels would probably be a bargain compared to Elizabeth Taylor’s jewels, which brought in a record-setting $115 million at auction. (When Taylor died in March, I wrote about her jewelry on the Huffington Post. You can revisit that story by clicking here.) Most of the jewelery sold for well above the estimates. The heart-shaped Taj Mahal Diamond, for instance, had a pre-auction estimate of $300,000 to $500,000, but sold for $8.8 million.
One of y’all better get my Chicken-in-Egg locket for $16,000 while you can. After an insanely glamorous actress buys it, it’s going to be worth millions! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
