    Of all of Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic jewelry, her gigantic diamond from Richard Burton takes the cake for the largest and most expensive rock she ever received. It wasn't technically an engagement ring, since Taylor and Burton were already married at the time of its purchase. The stone was originally won by Cartier at an auction in 1969, but Burton secured the ring for his wife the next day because he knew how much she wanted it. Known as the Taylor-Burton diamond, this pear-cut beauty weighs 68 carats and was acquired by Burton for $1.1 million. Shortly after receiving the ring, Taylor found that it was too heavy to wear on her finger, so she had it commissioned into a necklace instead.
