The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond


The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond (formerly known as Krupp Diamond)

The famous Elizabeth Taylor diamond is a 33.19 Carat GIA certified Asscher cut, D color and VS1 clarity. It was bought by Richard Burton for his wife, Elizabeth Taylor in 1968. Originally, it was called the Krupp Diamond because it was owned by the Krupp Family of German industrialists until sold as part of the estate of Vera Krupp, second wife of Alfried Krupp. Burton bought the diamond in an auction in New York for $307,000 and given it to Taylor while they were aboard Kalizma in London.

After Taylor's death in 2011, the diamond was renamed to "The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond" and was auctioned at Christie's by her estate on December 2011 and was sold for a total of $8,818,500 to a South Korean company named E-land
