At Christie's in New York Thursday, an auction of nine pieces of jewelry donated by Elizabeth Taylor brought in $230,000 for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. The event's centerpiece, a diamond and emerald ring that was Richard Burton's first gift to the actress, was purchased by a jewelry dealer for $80,000. The auction was held in conjunction with the Oct. 1 publication of Taylor's new book, "Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry." More of Taylor's jewelry remains on view at the Rockefeller Center Christie's in New York through Oct. 14.
