Jewels Of The Titanic Exhibit

As you know, us ladies here at On The Go LOVE things that are shiny and blingy!!!! So when one of our most favorite venues The Titanic Experience announced that they had a Jewels of the Titanic Exhibit coming to town, we KNEW we had to go!

Jewels of the Titanic

Premier Exhibitions Inc is doing a three-city tour that started in Atlanta, Ga and ends in Las Vegas, NV running until May 31, 2013. It is here in Orlando from January 11- March 12. The collection bodes 15 of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry that were actually found on one of the first dives to the Titanic site. Diamonds, Sapphires, pearls and gold pieces that actually belonged to one of Titanic’s wealthiest passengers.

Jewels of the Titanic

When guest boarded Titanic, they sent many of their most valuable items (Jewels, Money, Books, Paintings) to the Purser’s office which would hold all the expensive items in one place. They received claim receipts for pick up when Titanic would dock. It was explained to us by Mark Lach, who is the Titanic: the Artifacts Exhibition Creative Director that the guest who had valuables in The Purser’s office, once Titanic hit the ice berg, immediately went to retrieve their items and they were put into leather Gladstone bag, which were locked into safes and moved out to the lifeboats with the passengers.

Nobody is quite sure of the events after that but many pieces of the jewelry sank with the ship and are on display today. in 1987 when the team recovered a Gladstone bag from the wreckage site it contained, jewelry, bank notes, gold sovereigns and gold watches! Because the Gladstone bags were handmade, the chemicals that were used in the tanning process of the leather SAVED the currency notes and protected the rest of the belongings.

Also, just an FYI, the INFAMOUS Heart of the Ocean that was features in James Cameron’s Titanic, was fictional and never actually on board Titanic. But they do sell a replica at Titanic The Exhibit if you should feel the need to reenact any moment of the movie.

Thank you to Krystin of ThisIsPress.com for inviting us and as always, treating us like Royalty!

Jewels of Titanic Sails to Orlando in January

PREMIER EXHIBITIONS, INC. ANNOUNCES NEW TRAVELING EXHIBIT, JEWELS OF TITANIC, SET TO SHINE FOR A LIMITED TIME IN ATLANTA, ORLANDO AND LAS VEGAS

 

Collection of Titanic’s Priceless Jewels on Display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and

Titanic The Experience

Orlando, Fla., Nov. 27, 2012 – Fifteen of the most prestigious artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic have been gathered into one of the most dazzling collections ever assembled and will go on display November 16th. As part of a three-city tour, Jewels of Titanic, presented by Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and Titanic The Experience, features diamonds, sapphires, pearls and gold jewelry that once belonged to some of Titanic’s wealthiest passengers. Debuting in Atlanta with future engagements in Orlando and Las Vegas, Jewels of Titanic shares the story of the jewelry’s discovery, underwater recovery, mysterious lineage and the influence these artifacts have in today’s pop culture.

For more than 100 years, the mystique of R.M.S. Titanic’s sailing and subsequent sinking has captured the world’s imagination. Hailed as the most luxurious ocean liner the world had ever seen, Titanic’s manifest for the doomed maiden voyage had some of wealthiest and most well-known individuals of the day. As the Ship sank beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic, she claimed more than 1,500 lives and took all the treasures she carried on board to a watery grave 2.5 miles beneath the ocean surface.

These priceless items were once thought to be lost forever. However, 75 years after the sinking, Premier Exhibitions, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, RMS Titanic, Inc., the salvor-in-possession of the wreck site and producers of the remarkable Titanic exhibitions, embarked on the first recovery operation to Titanic. Among the twisted steel, murky water and unidentifiable objects was an unmarked leather Gladstone bag whose contents became some of the most remarkable artifacts ever recovered – the Jewels of Titanic.
