'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.

Many of Taylor's jewelry pieces were vulgar, and this is one of them.

If someone bought you a $19,000 ring just to show it off...you're probably the type of "housewife" that involves a lot of sucking.

Interesting how Elizabeth Taylor's children are selling off all of their mother's belongings.

Not only is the ring butt ugly but it looks even worse on Jill's stuby, short fingers. Gross

I must say...this nobody's gold brick really bought an UGLY piece of jewelry. $19,000.00 for THAT? The rich really needed to experience a classic French Revolution...she and the rest of the upper wealthy are very much in the "let them eat cake" mentality.

How can it look so classy on Elizabeth Taylor, and so trashy on this woman?
