Serious bling aficionados didn’t factor in one very important element into acquiring the late Elizabeth Taylor‘s jewelry at an auction at Christie’s in New York City — Kim Kardashian. TMZ reports that the hybrid-reality star has dropped $65,000 for three jade and diamond Lorraine Schwartz bracelets that belonged to that star. That is pocket change as compared to what the record-breaking auction cashed in on the whole. They made an incredible $116 MILLION. Kim was seriously in awe of Dame Liz and even interviewed her for Harper’s Bazaar shortly before she passed away. Interestingly enough, the first question Kimmy asked her was, “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?” In a few short months, Kim’s made progress on both fronts, so she’s well on her way.
