7:00 pm
we'll see some of the rare bracelet watches. here you see one pictured here is not an enamel it's in coral. so you can imagine how skillful and labor intensive is needs to be produced to have all those the scales individually carved out of coral and it's like a pail pink and it has those beautiful green emerald eyes. another rather exceptional versus is gold and platinum and diamond watch. it's particularly ideal to the one this elizabeth taylor was wearing while filming cleopatra
7:01 pm
in rome. this is elizabeth taylor. and you'll notice is that the body of this one this one is even grander the one that elizabeth taylor it has an extra coil. and finally an exceptional piece another of those wonderful serpent watches and this instance it's gold, diamond platinum and you can notice on the head a very large burmese rube i didn't. i'm showing you here how it would be presented in emphasis original case and how you can open the head to reveal the dial as in this case you can see
7:02 pm
surround by brilliant diamonds >> now incessantly it varies it was when bully was not involved in watch manning making so they were in top movements they vary. those are the ones that you find. and it's really i think wonderful to be able to see for the first time ever those 3 exceptional serpent watches which is really thanks to the generosity of a prominent california for an private collector has left them for the benefit of us to see. now moving in the 1980s it was
7:03 pm
the time when the bullyingy style came into its own the bold round shapes it was no coincidence when andy said well, i think you've jeweler is the 80s everybody is trying to copy this look. now buggingries jewels are bold in dimension and in color combination but at the same time their wear able to wear for the active woman dressed in the power suit of the time. which you can see here. now, it's not surprisingly that
7:04 pm
the necklace wearing ability is a key element of the buggery of the decade it's the belief it should be one or more for all occasions from a bowl to a picnic and when i mentioned to someone from the press they said i want to go to some of the picnics (laughter) >> buggery mixed precious elements and also created modular jeweler. now the first mod letter line was the par is he it consists of a pattern of style life break the. italian brake detectives. now those are all cast and individually hand finished and
7:05 pm
assembly. by changing the combination you can mix plain gold with diamonds u.s. as you can see here or other times mix gold with steel or you can really alter the look of the piece and have a various price change. so there of the also a number of superb dines as you know color is typical of the dine and roundness. for example, gems of extremely high value i see those larger columbiana emeralds are mounted
7:06 pm
next to a.m. sister and bus topped calibrated rube i didn't see. so once in a while color, rounded shapes and mixing gemstones regardless of the individual intrinsic value. and so by so doing they create the jewels that are chafshgd as a casual formality which in my view is the essence of italian style at large. now finally, i'd like to end this talk by showing you the jewels of elizabeth taylor. now day. elizabeth had a passion for collecting jewels and husbands. (laughter)
7:07 pm
>> now the jewels you'll see in the exhibition are mainly the gift from here fourth husbands east i didn't fishing and 5th and 6 accounting husband richard burton. they were worn extensive by the elizabeth taylor on the gene and in really life human resources she got from east i didn't fishing you see was mounted in platinum with emerald and diamonds. the second if a blossom you'll see in the explicit inhibition is mound is colonels diamonds of different shades. as it was given by the east i didn't fisher in february 1962 for her birthday.
7:08 pm
they were part of a set at his last attempt from keeping his wife from running away with rendering burton arrest now in the x you'll see a small emerald or relatively small 7 carrots emeralds that was the first emerald and diamond ring which was the first jewel she received from burton. sprirlsz she never regarded it as american people engagement gift it was a spectacular broach set with an emerald of 23.44 carrots in a surround of diamonds she received it on the set of cle past. now she was to off the top of my
7:09 pm
head of this broach she wore is and it appears in the film of vi public works. she we're to together with a flame blue in her head with the film for the vipz and on her wedding do i day on her first wedding in 1964 with richard burton arrest and as a wekd gift he gave her a neck last. it is amazing elizabeth taylor has worn this particular necklace xooefk throughout they are life and on any specific occasions. for example, she wore the necklace when she received the
7:10 pm
oscar for whose front yard of virginia wolf and when she was introduced to queen elizabeth the second and in her swimming pool (laughter) >> now another spectacular gave the was this wonderful pie from richard burton in 17972 as a 40th birthday gift and she received of the matching ring. and i think it is really one of the most spectacular pieces. it is set at the center with a have a very, very fine burr messes safe first of 75 carrots
7:11 pm
and it is from bury. it has a rounded effect and its nuclear because as i mentioned to you buggery tended to always use yellow gold from the 60s onward for high-end jewel and this is the only one that is platinum that i know of so it's a rare example and nonetheless very fine jewel. you can see here wearing it doubled up around here next for her at her 40 accounting birthday. it is a great advantage being a occur rapport of the bigy collection because i get the opportunity to examine those wonderful jewels very closely and i have to confess cerebral
7:12 pm
to try them on (laughter) now the taylor collection wouldn't be complete without the ironic coin jewels pr on the day she 2345u7b9d here the amendment to john warren she was wearing this dynamic. and finally another interesting piece in the taylor collections you'll see upstairs is this usually hand anywhere which she received for filming clep past and it was made by burry in 1972, however, who was the donor to pay the homage of the queen
7:13 pm
of the in this trial is a mystery but i hope we'll meet again and i'll be able to tell you the end of the story once i've been able to do the research. i hope i've been able to demonstrate the bury gem collections from the 1960s to the 1980s. buggery has been able to respond time and time again yet remains true to itself. which i believe is one of the best things faced by all artists. although the timeframe of the x inhibition ends in 1990 bully
7:14 pm
has continued into the 15 of not 2009 generally lent to this exhilaration by another california for an collector. the overall xylophone is very different from the bold pieces we saw in the 1980s bus it's still buggery. look at the fine deep blue safe fire and erroneously i didn't red coral and for the mixing of different levels of value the intrinsicly sapphire and the less costly coral. the buggery ingredients are all there but we worked again in a
7:15 pm
creative and inventive way. thank you >> the renovation of balboa park, the oldest in the city of san francisco, and now it is the newest part in the city of san francisco. through our partnership, and because of public investment from the two thousand eight
