Elizabeth Taylor's third husband, producer Mike Todd, presented her with this tiara fit for a queen, which she wore to the 1957 Oscars, when Todd's Around the World in 80 Days won Best Picture. It was one of many items sold at Christie's New York on Dec. 13 during an auction that fetched nearly $116 million.
