Reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who interviewed Elizabeth Taylor for Harper’s Bazaar in February, reportedly paid $65,000 for some of Taylor’s diamond bangle bracelets at last week’s record-breaking auction of the late actress’ jewelry and clothing.
According to blogs, Kardashian chose three jade and diamond bracelets by celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz.
Taylor’s jewelry brought in a total of $118 million, making it the most expensive private collection of jewels ever auctioned.
Many of the pieces sold for millions above their pre-sale estimates, such as the Krupp diamond ring, which had been expected to sell for $2.5-$3.5 million but eventually went for over $8.8 million.
