LIZ TAYLOR: the JAR affair

Liz Taylor purchased this pair of ear clips in Paris in 2001. They were made for her by famous contemporary legendary jeweller JAR (Joel Arthur Rosenthal) who selected coloured sapphires to match the colour play of Elizabeth's eyes. Jar himself recalls the commission: “She told me, "My eyes are blue, like yours, sometimes green. It's the others who think they see violet.‟ So, the striped balls are her vision of color, and the world's.”
