Miss Alice Elizabeth Fortune was 24 when she boarded the Titanic as a first class passenger in Southampton, England. She was born May 10, 1887, and was the daughter of Mark and Mary Fortune. She had been invited on a grand tour of Europe with her parents, two sisters and her brother. Just two months before she departed on the Titanic, while sitting on the veranda of a hotel in Cairo, Egypt, she was approached by a fortune teller who warned her "you are in danger every time you travel on the sea, for I see you adrift in an open boat... you will lose everything but your life." Alice gave the man some money, and he disappeared in the crowd. Alice returned to her home in Manitoba, Canada and married Charles Holden Allen just two months later.
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.
