Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian was one of the big bidders at Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry auction in New York on Tuesday, paying a reported $65,000 for bangles once owned by the movie icon.
Taylor’s gem collection set a new world record after it fetched $118 million and became the most valuable private collection of jewels ever sold at auction.

Buyers from around the world bid for the gold and diamonds and Kardashian, who interviewed her heroine just months before she passed away, was among them.

TMZ.com reports Kardashian snapped up Taylor’s three jade and diamond Lorraine Schwartz bangle bracelets.
