Avon proudly presents, Elizabeth Taylor's line of Avon jewelry, who spared no detail in her designs as she collaborated with Avon so they could join the ranks of famous designers and producers of high end jewelry. On the back of each piece, along with her name "Elizabeth Taylor" and "Avon," is an inscribed "E" in a lovely script selected by Elizabeth herself.

Avon jewelry authority and author Sandra Sturdivant, in her book "Identifying AVON JEWELRY", described this set "with gracefully flowing fins, opalescent and rhinestone scales, these fish breathe out bubbles of pearls and pursue a sapphire water drop."

Elizabeth Taylor Collection: Beautiful Oscar winning actress and avid jewelry collector, Elizabeth Taylor began to design costume jewelry for AVON in the early 1990s. Many of these pieces were designed after the much more expensive pieces of jewelry from her enormous collection – one of the largest and most valuable, privately-owned collections in the world. The quality of each piece is remarkable – after all, she put her name on it.

In 1994, Elizabeth Taylor designed this gorgeous set for Avon. Avon wanted its jewelry line to move into the ranks of fine costume jewelry ~ to be taken seriously if you will ~ as evidenced by the famous designers they enlisted to create these breathtaking pieces. Ms Taylor spared no detail when designing these earrings for Avon's high end jewelry line...and these are everything about high end!! Ms Taylor spared no detail when designing these earrings...

Elizabeth Taylor got her inspiration for these pieces from her treasured aquarium of iridescent tropical fish ~ with flowing fins, opalescent and rhinestone scales, the pair of gold-tone fish pursues a brilliant faux sapphire 4 3/4".

The information leaflet states, "Among Elizabeth Taylor's most treasured possessions is a magnificent aquarium filled with iridescent tropical fish... the inspiration for this collection. `No wonder I love looking at fish,' she says, "they sparkle like precious gems." With gracefully flowing fins and glowing opalescent scales, these shimmering gold-tone fish breathe out bubbles of faux pearls. The ear clips curl delicately around the ears as though somersaulting through a wave. The impressive pin features two rhinestone-sparked fish intertwined in pursuit of a brilliant faux sapphire."

These fish are breathtaking!! Elizabeth Taylor designed these after her fish at home that she so dearly loved to watch ~ jewels dancing in the water. She captured their magnificence ~ and Avon captured the design ~ and together they made fine costume jewelry fit for a queen.

The brooch measures 4 3/4" wide by 2" tall and the earrings measure approximately 1 1/2" long by 1 1/2" wide. The ornate gold-tone fish have gorgeous blue faux sapphire eyes, their scales glowing like opals accented with blue cabochons, and shimmering brilliant white rhinestones forming their scales. They are blowing little faux pearl bubbles.

On back, along with her name "Elizabeth Taylor" and "Avon," is inscribed with an "E" in a lovely script selected by Elizabeth herself.

These are perfect for the vintage Avon collector, the designer Avon collector, Elizabeth Taylor collectors, collectors of fashion jewelry, beach lovers or just for those of us with great taste in affordable jewelry!!
