jewelry auction Page 1
This is one of those moments at which we’re not at all surprised but also flabbergasted at the same time. Last night, the dearly departed Elizabeth Taylor‘s jewelry collection raised over $116 million dollars at auction, and broke not one but several world records in the process.
Back in June we reported that the FBI was intent on auctioning off all the jewelry that scumbag con artist Raffaello Follieri bought for his then-girlfriend Anne Hathaway. The auction is currently live, and anyone can get his or her starstruck hands on the glorious bounty of jewels that Follieri bought Hathaway before he was sent to prison. But instead of the heavy influx of money we expected Hathaway’s jewels to get, it turns out that bulk of the money is being thrown at Follieri’s Audemars Piguet collection.

One of the reasons we go bananas for Anne Hathaway is that despite her pristine taste in fashion, she accidentally dated a con-man for a few years and thereby made us feel better about all of our romantic foibles. But, while she long ago exited the relationship and left her unsavory consort, swindler cum-social climber Raffaello Follieri to face charges, unfortunately all doesn’t seem to be in the past.
