The Best Gems of All Time La Peregrina Pearl

La Peregrina Pearl

After passing from the hands of Spanish, French, and English kings and queens (Bloody Mary included), the pearl eventually wound up perched prominently on the bosom of an American royal, Elizabeth Taylor, in 1969. Richard Burton purchased the pearl for her, even outbidding a prince. Taylor then misplaced La Peregrina in a Las Vegas hotel, only to find it in her dog's mouth.
