Imelda Marcos Jewelry to be Auctioned (amazing pieces)
Philippine Government to Auction Imelda Marcos' Jewelry
By Douglas Bakshian
Manila

14 September 2005

The Philippine government plans to auction off millions of dollars worth of jewelry left behind by former First Lady Imelda Marcos after she and her husband were driven from power. Representatives of auction houses Christie's and Sotheby's are visiting Manila Thursday, to value the collection, a process that could take several days.

To many people, the flamboyant wife of former President Ferdinand Marcos is best known for the more than 1200 pairs of shoes she left behind in Manila's Malacanang Place when she and her husband fled to Hawaii in 1986. But Imelda Marcos also had an appetite for jewelry.

Hello Blackrose,
My name is Diana and the photos up put up were taken by me. The photos have full international copyright on them. I do already have those pieces on my own site, which I have put up and paid for on my own for 6 years, to show the world the extravagance. I would really appreciate it if you would please remove my photos and just put a link to my site as http://www.djl.net jewels.

Thanks for your understanding and support of artistic rights.

On another note
When Imelda arrived in Honolulu in 1986 she had in her hand carry a diamond crown and a diamond and pearl tiara... I know when I'm fleeing a country, a crown is the first thing I grab.....ya right.

wow.. I can't believe... she would spend that much on jewelry given... everything. I watched Imelda's documentary on PBS and she is definately a charachter.. I don't believe she is an evil woman.. but IMO she had/has her head in the clouds..

I'm half filipino btw

I think its too late for the poster to edit the pictures out. I think you have to wait for a mod to get around and delete the pictures.

webdiva888, I already pm'ed the mods to remove the pictures.

Jenner, I've seen the documentary on Imelda, she has a very absurd view on "beauty".

Her collection of shoes is now housed in a Museum in Marikina, Manila and she mentioned she tries 'em on when no one is looking. LOL
