'Real Housewives' Star

Check Out My $19,000 Ring

... Courtesy of Elizabeth Taylor

Former "Real Housewives of NYC" star Jill Zarin ain't bitter she got the boot from the show -- telling TMZ, she's still got a filthy rich husband ... and she proved it by flashing the $19,000 ring he bought her last month at Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry collection.

Honestly, we have no idea how she walked around with that thing last night in New York -- because it's freaking MASSIVE ... a gemstone the size of a baby's fist, designed by famed jeweler Zohrab Istanboulian, and once worn by Liz Taylor herself.

The ET auction took place last month in NYC -- and you may recall ... rich people of all shapes and sizes were at each other's throats to get their grubby mitts on the late legend's bling.

Kim Kardashian herself dropped $65,000 on a couple bracelets. Must be nice.

Ugly, unimportant ring. Looks like a large blue topaz with an exaggerated price because it was Elizabeth Taylor's. Most likely one of least expensive things at the auction. Get an attitude Jill when you can afford the Taylor-Burton diamond.

Jill needs that ring to compensate for her insecurities and vacuous personality.

Liz should have done like the Egyptians, and been buried with all her jewels. I can't stand seeing other people with them.

It looks like a costume ring. I'd only appreciate it if it was on Elizabeth Taylor. What an ego on this couple.

Ugliest hands + fingers I ever saw on a woman in my life!

Blue Topaz! Worth approximately $150.-$200.

Ms Taylor was given some amazing jewelry over the years. Many of them very expensive but they were big and gaudy looking. She also has some very beautiful classic pieces that I would love to have some day. Of course seeing the prices they are going for would make a nice down payment on a house, I'll have to pass....If I hit the lotto tomorrow, I might look at getting a few pieces just to have something that was part of her life.

Elizabeth Taylor could pull off wearing something so large and eye catching (and fugly) but not many people can. ESPECIALLY you with your fingernails down to the nub and your polish coming off. Looks horrible on you!

Get over yourself, Jill. Only Elizabeth Taylor could pull off wearing that ring with class. You only have money - Oops, your husband has the money.
