From the couture dresses worn for her two weddings with actor Richard Burton, to the dazzling ruby and diamond Cartier jewelry set, a gift from her third husband, film producer Mike Todd, “The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor” on display at Christie’s auction house in New York tells a passionate story, spanning nearly five decades.

Other tokens of admiration at the exhibition, include an autographed poster from Taylor’s cherished friend, Michael Jackson, and her famed 33.19-carat diamond ring, a gift from Burton in 1968.

The memorabilia will be up for auction both live and online Dec. 13-17. A portion of the profits will be donated to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
