Channeling a young Elizabeth Taylor is a lot harder than it looks. In fact, even modern-day glamazon Kim Kardashian has spent over $65,000 on Taylor’s jade bracelets just in the attempt to “harness” her energy. After all, although her jewelry collection is proving to have quite the sky-high price, as demonstrated by Christie’s online auction, the late movie star had a priceless effect on her fans; she had that dramatic gorgeousness that still managed to be warm, friendly and approachable. In other words, she had that whole trying-without-looking-like-you’re-trying-at-all effortlessness down to a science – and beauty and fashion mavens everywhere will continue to look up to her legacy for years and years to come. But just because Taylor’s jewelry has been auctioned off at a price you can barely believe, that doesn’t mean you can’t harness a little Liz energy of your own with lookalike pieces that still manage to capture her youthful spirit and timeless beauty. This Pave Diamond Heart Necklace by Zoe Chicco is a favorite of modern-day “It girls” like Dakota Fanning and Vanessa Hudgens, but looks like something like Liz Taylor might have worn if she had the chance to out-glam the modern fashion icons in this day and age. And for only $185, this necklace is the perfect addition to start your own statement-making jewelry collection, with just the right amount of glitz without breaking the bank!
