Madeleine Talmage Force Astor, quite the charmer! She and her husband were the most talked about couple on the Titanic, so let me tell you a few things before the gossips do. People talk, not because he's the richest man aboard, or becauseMadeleine was a year younger than his 19-year-old son, or because he's more than twice her age. People have always talked about everything he does because he's John Jacob Astor IV, which is why Madeleine planned for weeks preparing for this extravagant trip and why she knows everyone will be anxious to see what jewels she will be wearing! You can almost hear the gasps from the ladies wishing they could look just likeMadeleine Astor...the Titanic Princess.
Titanic Jewelry Collection For four magical days, the Titanic's elite passengers reveled in every modern luxury known at the time. During the early part of the 20th century, it was considered quite sophisticated for wealthy families to spend portions of their time in Europe, which meant crossing the Atlantic at least once per year. Even to these jaded travelers, the Titanic ship was like no other. Not only was it the most impressive ship of it's time, draped in every luxury imaginable,?but so were it's passengers. The women of the Titanic would plan for months to bring just the right fashionable apparel to bring aboard such a luxurious ship. From planning on which outing to wear the perfectly tailored suit, the famous tunic top and pencil long skirt or an extravagant ball gown. Along with extensive outfit planning came the accessories...large hats, mink stoles, gloves and of course?the jewelry. Jewelry of that time was depictive of the Art Nouveau and Edwardian eras. Art Nouveau jewelry was influenced on naturalism, involving unusual designs within a symmetrical frame encompassing foliage, leaves, enamel, pearls, crystals and gemstones. Edwardian designs included more formal jewelry; tiaras, brooches, rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and sautoir necklaces. Many set with brilliant gemstones, diamonds, crystals and of course, pearls. Join JTV as we embark upon a journey of adventure and elegance and mark the 100th year of the Titanic's maiden voyage.
