“Gold from the Golden Age: Amazing collection of jewelry owned by classic Hollywood including Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and Rita Hayworth goes up for auction
“The largest collection of jewelry from the Golden Era of Hollywood is set to be sold off at auction including famous pieces worn by Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.
“The collection of Eugene Joseff is expected to sell for millions of pounds because it featured in dozens of classic films from the 1930s to the 1950s.”
“Mr Joseff manufactured his own jewelry and seen as having single-handedly made it an essential part of costume in Hollywood.
“According to auctioneers Julien’s, who are based in Los Angeles, Mr Joseff supplied nearly 90 per cent of all jewelry worn on screen in the 1930s and 40s.
“He created the concept of loaning jewelry to Hollywood stars and was a canny businessman who kept the pieces for himself meaning he could reuse them in many films.
“Julien’s spokeswoman Caroline Galloway said that a conservative estimate for the collection was between £1.6 and £2.4 million when it goes on sale in November.”
