Red Carpet Jeweler: Elizabeth Taylor - Top 5 most adored jewelry piecies ElizabethTaylor-RubyNecklaceElizabeth Taylor was a two-time winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress, as well as a philanthropist. She will forever be a part of "Hollywood's Golden Age", standing alongside the likes of John Wayne, Shirley Temple, James Dean, Henry Fonda, Marilyn Monroe and many more!

Taylor was also famous for something else; the jewels she wore. Elizabeth Taylor inspired us with every type of jewelry you could imagine. Her love for diamonds was most well-known; below are five most adored jewelry pieces of Elizabeth Taylor.

Taylor was given this stunning ruby and diamond Cartier creation (seen left) by her third husband, Mike Todd. She spoke about this piece in her book "Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair With Jewelry".Red Carpet Jeweler: Elizabeth Taylor - Top 5 most adored jewelry piecies TajMahalDiamond

The "Taj Mahal Diamond" (seen right) was given to Taylor by Richard Burton for her 40th birthday. Burton presented her with the historical Taj Mahal diamond, described as a "flat heart shaped stone with inscribed Arabic, surrounded by rubies and diamonds and a yellow-gold necklace. "

The Krupp Diamond (seen below, to the right) was also given to Taylor by Richard Burton as his first big purchase for his wife. The Krupp Diamond has 33.19 carat Asscher-cut Krupp Diamond. Known for being originally owned to the Krupp estate, it found a new home with Taylor in 1968. Burton had the diamond mounted on a ring, which Elizabeth Taylor was seen wearing numerous times.Red Carpet Jeweler: Elizabeth Taylor - Top 5 most adored jewelry piecies KruppDiamond

Burton purchased this diamond, which turned out to be one of the most expensive stones in the world at that time. The Diamond was worth about $1.1 million. Taylor later sold the diamond treasure to raise money for a children's hospital.

Although Elizabeth Taylor passed on last week, her legacy will never be forgotten. Not only does it live on in her work, her charitable contributions, and the memories of those who knew and loved her, but in the iconic jewelry she made famous.
