Christie's auction house says it has reached an agreement with Elizabeth Taylor's family to sell her prized jewelry collection, as well as some of her art, clothing and other memorabilia.

Christie's says it is planning a series of auctions that will be announced later this spring.

Taylor died last month at age 79.

The screen star was known for her passion for opulent diamonds.

She published a book in 2003 titled, "Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry," and her collection has included some of the world's most expensive stones.
