London: Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has bought screen legend Elizabeth
Taylor's three jade and diamond Lorraine Schwartz bangles for $ 65,000.
The 31-year-old socialite was one of the big bidders at Elizabeth
Taylor's jewellery auction in New York on December 13 paying the huge
amount for bangles once owned by the movie icon, TMZ reported.
Taylor's gem collection set a new world record after it fetched USD 118
million and became the most valuable private collection of jewels ever
sold at auction.
Buyers from around the world bid for the gold and diamonds and
Kardashian, who interviewed her heroine just months before she passed
away, was among them.
