Jewels of Titanic

By January 20, 2013

Follow me on:

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 the wealthiest and most well-known individuals of the day.

It was 75 years after the Titanic sank that the first recovery operation was embarked upon.   One of the most remarkable artifacts  found was an unmarked leather Gladstone bag  containing jewels from some of the passengers.  These treasures are now on display at Titanic The Experience on International Drive until March 12, 2013 as Jewels of Titanic.
