BEVERLY HILLS - An eight-piece collection of jewels that once belonged to entertainment icon Elizabeth Taylor will be displayed during a special preview Tuesday at a Beverly Hills jewelry store, a spokesperson said today.
The Bulgari collection will include pieces Taylor wore during the filming of "Cleopatra" in 1963, as well as her first piece of Bulgari, an emerald and diamond En Tremblant brooch, said Andy Gelb, a spokesperson for Bulgari.
The special preview will take place between 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at Bulgari , 401 N. Rodeo Drive, Gelb said.
The setting of the event, the week prior to the Oscars, was designed to "evoke 1960s Rome when international movie stars flocked to the Eternal City to celebrate everything Italian, embracing indulgence and hedonism," organizers said. The jewels are not for sale, Gelb said.
