Guess How Much Elizabeth Taylor's Jewellery Collection Was Worth? (Hint: A LOT)

Good Morning America has taken a look at Elizabeth Taylor's vast jewellery collection - revealing it is worth over $150 million.

The legendary actress - who passed away this week at the age of 79 - had a self-confessed diamond addiction, and once spoke to Barbara Walters about her magpie-like love for all things bling.

"The beauty, the perfection, God's workmanship. They're all from the ground," she explained.

Her affinity for gemstones began as a child and continued as through her series of eight marriages.

Walters asked her if it was awkward for her new men to see their predecessor's presents. "So I've been told," Liz remarked. What did she do about it?

"Encourage them to give me more." Good answer!

Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest at Forrest Lawn Cemetery after a family and friends funeral last night.
