Unpublished Life Magazine Photo: Just 18 years old, Elizabeth Taylor arrives to marry hotel heir Conrad “Nicky” Hilton at the Bel-Air Country Club. This was the first of her eight marriages, and for the occasion she wore a gown given to her by MGM Studios.
Elizabeth Taylor's "Granny" Necklacewas from by Van Cleef & Arpels. She was a child bride at 18 (short-lived marriage No. 1 to Nicky Hilton) and a grandmother at the age of 38. Burton saw fit to honor the occasion with this gold-and-diamond set, which made Elizabeth’s heart start “clicking like a castanet.” NOTE: Elizabeth Taylor Granny Suite or Barquerolles choker by Van Cleef & Arpels. Sold for $902,500.
