Empress Isabel's Pearl

I heard the other day a very curious story. Anyone familiar with Tizian, will recognise this painting of the beautiful wife of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor.

On the Empress' dress, one can see a gigantic jewel pinned to the front of said dress and the enormous pearl hanging from it.

Now, on to the story. It was brought to my attention that the famous pearl is now in the possession of...

Elizabeth Taylor!

The size of it is correspondent with Miss Taylor's taste in jewelry, but one can only wonder... Is it fact or just an "urban legend"?
