Madeleine Talmage Force Astor was quite the charmer! She and her husband were the most talked about couple on the Titanic, not because he was the richest man aboard or because Madeleine was a year younger than his 19-year-old son or because he was more than twice her age. People had always talked about everything John Jacob Astor IV did just because of who he was, which is why Madeleine planned for weeks preparing for their extravagant trip and why she knew everyone would be anxious to see what jewels she would be wearing! You can almost hear the gasps from the ladies wishing they could look just like Madeleine 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 its time draped in every luxury imaginable but so were its passengers. The women of the Titanic would plan for months to bring the right fashionable apparel aboard such a luxurious ship. Along with extensive outfit planning came accessorizing: 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 by naturalism involving unusual designs within a symmetrical frame often encompassing foliage, leaves, enamel, pearls, crystals and gemstones. Edwardian designs included more formal jewelry: tiaras, brooches, rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and sautoir necklaces. Many were set with brilliant gemstones, including diamonds, crystals and of course, pearl.
