Kim Kardashian wasn't the only reality star to bid on Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry.
Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York fame won two items: a Zorhab Istanboulian ring and a 14kt gold Van Cleef and Arpels pill box with the inscription "To Elizabeth With Love".
Her husband Bobby ended up shelling out $19,000 for the light blue gemstone ring and another $8,000 for the pillbox, but Jill thinks it was worth every penny:
"I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Taylor I always have been. I admired her because she was such a loyal friend and because she was the first A-list celebrity to say that HIV/AIDS is not a gay disease and came out to help so many people. Owning some of her pieces is really personal."
Jill admits she's really good at losing things and hopes to have Taylor's trinkets in her possession for a long time.
