Liz Taylor's jewels go on show in Paris before auction

Help

A touring exhibition of about 80 of Elizabeth Taylor's jewels is on show in Paris.

Among the items is a 16th century pearl necklace, once worn by the Queen of Spain for a Velazquez portrait.

It was bought at an auction by her ex-husband Richard Burton as a Valentine's gift.

The jewellery will be auctioned in New York in December.
