The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor @ Christie's- did you buy your ticket?

Avrielle cannot wait for this once in a lifetime opportunity to view Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor's spectacular jewelry/ accessory collection!  We only WISH we could attend the actual auctions... our arms would likely spasm, resulting in an involuntary bid for our favorite pieces-- oops!  We'll do a post after attending the collection viewing (including images), so be sure to check back here mid-December for the full report!
