A 1969 Bulgari necklace in gold with emerald, rubies and diamonds is surrounded by animated photographs from Hollywood leading ladies is on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science Bulgari on April 29, 2014 in Houston. Richard Burton once quipped that Elizabeth Taylor knew only one Italian word: Bulgari. Taylor collected hundreds of fabulous jewels in her lifetime, but few as grand as the Bulgari pieces from Burton, including a platinum-and-diamond necklace centered around a 65-carat Burmese cabochon sapphire, a present for her 40th birthday. The necklace is one of 150 one-of-a-kind creations from the Bulgari Heritage collection on display beginning Friday at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in "Bulgari: 130 Years of Masterpieces." A section of the exhibit is devoted to Taylor's famous pieces from the Italian jeweler. (AP Photo/Houston Chronicle, Marie D. De Jesus) MANDATORY CREDIT
