Fashion designer Donatelli Versace spoke at
Oxford University recently (?? I know, but let's move on for now) and she shared this very funny vignette about Elizabeth Taylor, who famously had one of the best jewelry collections
in the world (I always figured it was just those violet eyes that made men lavish her with gifts):
Versace also let loose some anecdotes, one of them about fellow jewelry nut Elizabeth Taylor.
Taylor admired Versace’s ring once, and asked if she could try it. Versace obliged, but never managed to get the ring back. Instead, she received a thank you from Taylor: “Hey darling, the ring is so beautiful. Thank you so much!”
