United Press International (12.14.11) - Friday, December 16,
The sale of jewelry from the estate of the late Elizabeth
Taylor brought in a total of $115 million, the auction house
Christie's told the New York Post. Part of the proceeds from
the sale will go to the screen star's AIDS foundation. The
sale set a new world's record for the auction of a single
private jewelry collection. "It's one of the most
extraordinary auctions that Christie's has ever had and a
testament to the affection for Elizabeth Taylor worldwide,"
said Christie's Americas President Marc Porter.
