Titanic Jewels

For the 100th Anniversary commemorating the sinking of the Titanic, an amazing collection of priceless jewels recovered from the bottom of the ocean is set to go on public display. Most of the precious jewels found in the wreckage of the ship will be made available for the first time ever with a tour starting in Atlanta, Georgia.

The jewelry was discovered in small bag during a 1987 recovery mission. The collection includes diamond and sapphire rings, brooches, necklaces, cuff links and a gold pocket watch.

Alexandra Klingelhofer, vice president of collections for Titanic Inc., said the purpose of the exhibit is to show the public the wonder of exploration. ‘Going down two and a half miles below the ocean, recovering a bag, bringing it back up and opening it and finding … jewelry,’ Klingelhofer said. ‘We’re able to give them a glimpse of how it must have been to have opened that for the first time and to see, together, the beautiful jewelry of the Edwardian Period.’
