Taylor commissioned Cartier to design the mount for La Peregrina, the famous pear-shaped pearl, once one of Spain’s crown jewels.
This Bulgari brooch of emeralds and diamonds was an engagement gift from Burton. Taylor wore it with the yellow dress at their wedding.
Apparently, Burton gave Taylor these rings after she beat him in a game of ping-pong. They are now called the “Ping-Pong Diamonds.”
