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.

Now folks,Elizabeth Taylor was no angel!Don't you recall how she broke up the marriage of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher?She also lured Richard Burton away from his wife and daughter.If Elizabeth wanted something(or someone)she had no qualms or conscience about it.She lead a life of debauchery,extravagance,gluttony and drug addiction/alcohol.
A beautiful woman,a good actress yes-a saint? Far from it!

Kind of ironic that Kim admires a beautiful and talented actress who married 10+ times because she couldn't sleep with men until she married them. And little miss porn star does not seem to get how the public feels about her!

Maybe she thinks she is a real celebrity now. Although we know she is not. She is not even beautiful. Hope the Kardashian Klan disappears soon - or at least from the news media.

Even if I was rich as her, I wouldn't buy jewelry in that price. I don't get people anymore. Especially her.

It's not like Liz is using them. What the hell should anyone care what Kim spends her money on?

I'm sorry, $65k for Liz's bangles? How much did she drop in Haiti? No word on that?

This is a family first known for Robert Kardashian's OJ Simpson defense and his ex wife Kris marrying Bruce Jenner, a then respected Gold Medalist. Fast forward to daughter Kim's "leaked" sex tape; graphic oral sex and intercourse performed by "Kimmie" (coincidentally after her friend Pari******on also had a "leaked" sex tape). Mother Kris decides she better do some damage control and turn this little problem around... Fast fast forward to the present, several years after multi reality shows of the new Jenner/Kardashian clan and a multi million dollar "brand" of overpriced krap from the K girls has emerged. They are plastered everywhere; supermarkets, shopping malls, billboards, radio, and of course television - One can avoid their reality show, but it's nearly impossible to be free of their images and voices. What's wrong with this ? The all too famous Kardashians have made a mockery of the American family, the American culture, and the basic values and morals most of us were all taught no matter what race, religion or generation we come from. They are rude and vulgar while fighting, cussing and whining their way through their televised daily lives filled with staged events, conspicuous consumption and plastic surgery. Needless to say, there is no evidence of any real talent here either. Sadly, these people are seen by millions as role models. This family is a horrific masterminded marketing joke on the American public, and unfortunately, millions are buying it, literally.

She could buy every single piece of jewelry and still not touch the classical beauty and dignity of Liz Taylor. LT was a real lady who actually had talent and did not screw her men on camera.


KK could take her show size, deduct 2 points and still not match her IQ. LT has more elegance in her dead body than KK.

If you saw an excerpt from the Barbara Walters interviews tonight, the KarTRASHians really expose just how vulgar & vapid they are. They come across as shallow, stupid, and clueless. I think this interview will finally do them in, especially after they show the interview of the other (real) stars that Barbara will be interviewing. I heard on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider this evening that this week has all of the KarTRASHian wh*ores on multiple covers and ALL of the sales on those magazines are way down! That's great news! That means that we all are doing what we said we were going to do. . .not buy any magazines with them on the cover. I think we sent a message to the magazines this week. They will lose $$ if they put those wh*ores on the cover. I bet they won't be on next. (fingers crossed)

I think it was the "Osborns",who first started this reality garbage. Then everyone wanted to get on the band wagon and cash in."Jersey Shore" is the worst trash on t.v.The public has made those little thugs filthy rich.I hope the public will soon wise up and quit being suckers and fools,who enrich all these racketeers!

TRUE, aside from Elizabeth Taylor going after another woman's man, she was an extremely charitable woman who, generously, donated much of her fortune to medical research and many other highly respectable organizations. For someone like KK to actually own and wear Ms Taylor's cherished jewelry is, by far, the ultimate insult to this remarkable icon. My God, doesn't this conceited KK person EVER stop staining everyone and anything she set her sights on??? Apparently, not!!!
