Elizabeth Taylor had a 55.95-carat pearl, that recently sold for a record $11.8 million dollars!!
What's amazing is that, even though it's huge and insanely valuable, someone still bought it after it had been eaten by Taylor's dog!
"Twenty minutes after she put it on, she lost it."
She went to go try on the pearl and ran back into the room screaming:
"I’ve lost the pearl!"
They immediately began searching the room.
"The room had pink shag carpeting, and I was crawling past a settee when I saw one of [Taylor’s] two Lhasa apsos, and I heard the crunch. I said, ‘Liz, I know where the pearl is.’"
Taylor immediately ran to her dog to retrieve the pearl.
"She got the dog to spit it out. I was afraid it cracked because pearls do."
The pearl only suffered a few minor scratches.
So now some lucky anonymous bidder has themselves a new, million dollar, giant pearl… with a few dog tooth scratches on it.
