Kim Kardashian

Pays BIG MONEY

Kim Kardashian just dropped $65k to outbid a gang of serious jewelry nuts for 3 unbelievable jade and diamond bracelets that used to belong to Elizabeth Taylor ... TMZ has learned.

Taylor's entire collection of rare and expensive jewelry was auctioned off in NYC this week for a whopping $116 MILLION ... and Kim was one of the bidders.

Sources close to KK tell TMZ ... Kim idolized Taylor -- especially after Kim did a magazine interview with Liz for a project shortly before her death. So when Kim saw LT's 3 jade and diamond Lorraine Schwartz bangle bracelets on the auction block, she snatched 'em up for a cool $64,900. 

We're told Kim believes jade harnesses energy ... and now that she owns the bracelets, KK feels she will share a deeper connection to the Hollywood icon.

Kim is not in possession of the jewelry yet ... but she's expected to get 'em sometime in the next few days.

Kim think those bracelets will pass some of Elizabeth Taylor's energy onto her. LOL...This chick is more stupid than I thought. I really believe Kim thinks she's the new Liz Taylor.

Looks like she was too cheap to buy one of the higher price items. 65k in this auction is small time. Some of the jewelry is going for millions of dollars.

Hopefully KIM KARDASHIAN will feel the LIZ TAYLOR connection on the "other side".
-------------------------------------------------------
KARDASHIANS have tainted LIZ TAYLOR'S memory, CLINT EASTWOOD'S career (by E Entertainment association), X-husband CHRIS' life, SEARS, OPI nail polish, etc. The KARDASHIAN Path of Destruction lays waste with all of their associations. It seems to be a CURSE.

RYAN SEACREST and his hideous productions (with that smirky face) needs to go sit on an island and think about all the SLEAZE he produces in our society. Viewers are now wise to the SH*T Ryan produces and ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Hey Kim, sorry honey, you are now were near the caliber of Liz Taylor's celebrity. To the buying public: keep the Kardashian brand OFF your list this holiday season and put it towards hard working american small businesses who are more worthy. Let's put the Kardashian klan out of business once and for all. Power of the masses is much stronger than the dollar.

Lipstick on a pig. You can dress up a ho in Liz's bangles but she'll still be a ho.
