Reality star Kim Kardashian was among the winning bidders at the Elizabeth Taylor jewelry auction in New York today.
Kim paid $65,000 for three bangle bracelets once owned by the screen legend.
Taylor’s jewelry collection actually set a new world record, bringing in $118 million to become the most valuable private collection of jewelry ever sold at auction.
Kardashian purchased Taylor’s three jade and diamond Lorraine Schwartz bangle bracelets.
Kim herself, who interviewed Liz for a magazine interview before her death, said she believed the powers of jade. Kim stated, “If you have a piece of jade, the energy goes into the piece and you absorb the energy. So I can feel Elizabeth in the piece.”
Kim adds, “Elizabeth Taylor is iconic. She is my idol and my icon.”
