“Jewelry is silent, but more impressive to women than any language”, Shakespeare said. If I have an opportunity to choose a jewelry spokeswoman from Hollywood female stars, it must be Elizabeth Taylor. From 18 to 79 years old, seven husbands and eight marriages left the wounds of love and a great number of jewelries to her. Men captures women’s hearts by sending jewelries to their lovers since antiquity. Few women received so many pieces jewelry, and Elizabeth Taylor is one of them. Looking back on Taylor’s entire life, I’m afraid that jewelry others sent to her circles the earth once. From Taylor’s Tiffany jewelry, whom did Taylor fall in love with?

20th Century Fox made a movie Cleopatra in which Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton starred in 1962. It is also Taylor’s moat iconic film. It’s said that Taylor was afraid of Richard Burton, because he was a gifted actor all people commended and praised. When Taylor in Egyptian eye makeup walked into the shooting area, Mr. Burton walked up to her and praised her, “Have you ever been told that you are beautiful?” Years later, Taylor often recalled with a smile the romantic moment. When Miss Taylor and Mr. Burton shot the first scene before the video camera, many staff felt their love on the set. Taylor’s fourth husband Eddie Fisher often visited the set and accompanied her during filming. The love between Taylor and Burton could be felt by staff and Eddie Fisher in the quiet shooting sites. Finally, Taylor ended their marriage with Eddie Fisher on March 6, 1964. On 15th of the same month, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton got married in Montreal, Canada.
