Other Details Gift from Michael Jackson
This elegant Van Cleef and Arpels piece was made on request by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson most possibly from Van Cleef and Arpels Rodeo Drive boutique. It is believed that Michael Jackson gave this brooch to Elizabeth Taylor as her birthday present.

Van Cleef and Arpels is one of the best jewellery maker in the world and we can understand why Michael Jackson selected Van Cleef and Arpels for Elizabeth Taylor.

This Diamond and Gold Bow Brooch is designed in the most gorgeus and cute style.
The graceful and somewhat sophisticated image of Elizabeth Taylor differed to the image that Michael Jackson held and this is reflected in the Jewellery design.

We believe Michael Jackson thought that only Van Cleef and Arpels could best express the image of Elizabeth Taylor through their Jewellery mastery.
