Auctions: Liz’s Jewels, Wayne’s Patch

Elizabeth Taylor’s entire collection of 300 pieces of jewelry, valued at $30 million, will be auctioned at Christie’s in New York in December. (If you think the pieces will fetch only $30 million, you’ve been drinking too much gin.) Lots will include the 33.19-carat Asscher-cut Krupp Diamond. Meanwhile, the Independent reports: ‘The eye patch worn by John Wayne during his Oscar-winning performance in “True Grit” will be among the actor’s belongings to be sold at auction next month. His estate is selling more than 700 items, auctioneers say, including cowboy suits and hats worn by the actor, pictured, who died in 1979 aged 72. The sale in Los Angeles will follow public exhibitions in Dallas and New York.’
