A jewelry collection that once belonged to Elizabeth Taylor is expected to be on display beginning Wednesday at Bulgari in Beverly Hills, a spokesman said Monday.

An eight-piece collection of jewels that once belonged to entertainment icon Elizabeth Taylor is to be displayed during a special preview Tuesday at a Beverly Hills jewelry store.

The Bulgari collection will include pieces Taylor wore during the filming of Cleopatra in 1963, as well as her first piece by Bulgari, an emerald and diamond En Tremblant brooch, said Andy Gelb, a spokesman for the jeweler.

The preview will take place 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Bulgari, 401 N. Rodeo Drive.

The collection will also include the "Taylor Burton fiancee ring," which is a diamond brooch with a 23.44 octagonal step-cut diamond, Gelb said.

The setting of the event, the week prior to the Oscars, was designed to "evoke 1960s Rome when international movie stars flocked to the Eternal City to celebrate everything Italian, embracing indulgence and hedonism," organizers said.

The jewels are not for sale, Gelb said.
