The Liz Taylor Diamond MASK

It was designed and made in 1993 by Henry Dunay for Elisabeth Taylor. They called it the "Lachrymosa" referring to the sadness that AIDS brought to them. The piece was auctioned to benefit the American Foundation for AIDS research. It is set with over 130 carats of diamonds in platinum and gold. Undoubtedly one of the most extravagant pieces of contemporary jewellery that one can find nowadays. It is for sale at Windsor Jewellers in NY for $3 million!.
