Kim Kardashian buys Elizabeth Taylor bracelets in jewelry auction

Kim-Kardashian.jpgIf you watched Kim Kardashian's ill-fated "Fairy Tale Wedding" special on E!, you undoubtedly heard her many references to Elizabeth Taylor (perhaps the first sign that her marriage to Kris Humphries wouldn't be her last). She even modeled her super-glam wedding after Taylor's tastes.

It's no surprise, then, that Kardashian shelled out some serious cash in the Christie's auction of Taylor's most prized possessions. She paid nearly $65,000 for three Lorraine Schwartz jade and diamond bangle bracelets that were once part of Taylor's considerable jewelry collection.

"Elizabeth Taylor was an idol of mine, and I'm honored to now own something from her collection," she tells Us. "The Lorraine Schwartz jade bracelets are special because jade transfers energy, so I will cherish these bracelets with her energy in them for the rest of my life!"

We're sure they'll go great with that ring she won't give up.
