Just a few weeks ago Jeminee was talking to us girls in the office about how much she loves Elizabeth Taylor. Her iconic beauty, demeanour and of course her exquisite love affair with jewellery! We were all inspired and our latest collections depict her style.
I was updating my latest facebook update when suddenly I saw the news of the legend (Elizabeth Taylor) has left this world. I told everyone in the office and we all took a deep sigh.
As we mourn the death of one of the most famous cinema icons: English-born American actress, Elizabeth Taylor. After over 70 years in the film industry, she died on Wednesday, the 23.March.2011 at the age of 79.
Only one day after, the eight times married icon was buried in a private Jewish ceremony, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
Elizabeth Taylor was a prestigious spokeswoman for Aids research and advocated for the general humanitarian charity work.
We admire not only her incredible talent for acting, we also have to acknowledge her talent for designing art, clothing, furniture and especially Jewellery. Her passion for elaborate and glamorous jewellery was incredible.
Here are a few of our favourite pictures from the Jeminee team..
