A History Of Engagement Rings, Vol. 4: The 1950’s
Last week in A History Of Engagement Rings we talked about one of the greatest jewelry collectors of modern times: Liz Taylor. Oddly enough, or maybe not so oddly given that she was married 8 times, she shows up again here with us in the recap of the 1950’s. Four times (Conrad Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd and Eddie Fisher). 🙂
But then again, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Margaret (Queen Elizabeth’s sister), Ethel and Robert Kennedy, Jayne Mansfield and Dihann Carroll are all married in the decade too. None of them as many times as Liz, however.
Ethel Kennedy’s ring was fairly traditional (from photos, it looks to be a larger center stone with baguette diamonds on each side) and she has been seen to still be wearing it in photos as recent as a couple of years ago.
Jayne Mansfield, who was married three times before her untimely death at age 34, received a 10ct stunner from Miklós Hargitay, her second husband.
