Gorgeous Ruby and Diamond Earrings are part of the jewelry suite designed by Cartier for Elizabeth Taylor. These were gifted by her third husband Mike Todd in August 1957.

In her book 'My Love Affair with Jewelry', she wrote:

"I got out and put my arms around him, and he said, 'Wait a minute, don't joggle your tiara.' Because I was wearing the tiara he had bought for me in the pool! He was holding a red leather box, and inside was a ruby-and-diamond bib necklace, which glittered in the warm light. It was like the sun, lit up and made of red fire. First Mike put it around my neck and smiled. Then he bent down and put matching earrings on me. Next came the bracelet. Since there was no mirror around, I had to look into the water. The jewelry was glorious, rippling red on blue like a painting. I shrieked with joy, put my arms around Mike's neck, and pulled him into the pool after me. It was a perfect summer day and a day of perfect love."

The Earrings are estimated to cost around $80,000 – 120,000 and will be auctioned by Christie's this December.
