Steal Her Style: Elizabeth Taylor’s Wedding Gift From Richard Burton

With the news breaking this morning of Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery collection going up for auction in December we thought we would pay tribute to her most famous piece, the Krupp diamond, which was given to her by her fifth husband on their first marriage, Richard Burton.

Initially Cartier purchased this diamond at a public sale in 1969 and named it “Cartier.” The next day Richard Burton purchased the diamond for Elizabeth Taylor. He renamed it the “Taylor-Burton” and gave it to her as a wedding present.
