This Elizabeth Taylor "Evening Star Collection" is a BOOK PIECE appearing in Sandra Sturdivant's book, "Identifying AVON JEWELRY".
These are from Avon's Designer Series including Elizabeth Taylor and her "Evening Star Collection". The brochure stated that this ring is the equivalent in size to 2.25 carat total diamond weight featuring baguettes and round rhinestones. This beauty is set in gold-tone with 22K gold overlay.
This collection is the supreme high end fashion costume jewelry designed for important "red carpet" type of functions i.e. red carpet, expensive black tie dinner functions, eating at the White House or for any time appearing where you want people to see the "fine" jewelry" that Elizabeth Taylor loved so much. And still, this collection can be worn for everyday activities. She collaborated with Avon to create a high end jewelry line at prices more women could afford. Anything with Elizabeth Taylor's name is indeed high fashion. Elizabeth Taylor created high end fashion pieces that were sure to please and these are no exception. And as with all of her designs for Avon, Ms Taylor spared no detail which helped Avon join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry.
This is the gorgeous ring from the Elizabeth Taylor "Evening Star Collection" that features both round crystals and baguettes set in shiny gold-plate. This is a size 9 ring. The crystals are large cubic zirconia that are designed to look like real diamonds and they do reflect light beautifully. Notice the difference in length of the baguettes on the top and bottom. They run long on one side and short on the other.
Inside, on one side of the shank (band) of the ring is inscribed "Avon" and on the other side is the "E" in a lovely script selected by Elizabeth herself.
This collection is pre-owned but in excellent mint condition. This ring appears to have not been worn, or worn very little. This ring is a new "old" and it comes in its original box and with the leaflet. There is no indication of dullness, tarnish, or wear and there is nothing missing, broken, bruised or bumped.
The last picture is of both the "Evening Star Collection" clip earrings and the "Evening Star Collection" ring are shown for your convenience of how beautifully they look together. See additional listings that are available for the "Evening Star Collection".
