Edith Rosenbaum was a journalist and had been reporting on French fashions until she decided to return to the states. The Titanic was the obvious transportation choice. Edith posted a letter in Queenstown, Ireland, describing Titanic as "the most wonderful boat you could think of. To say that it is wonderful is unquestionable, but not the cozy ship-board feeling of former years. She is new, it?s her maiden voyage and she is the talk of the world." During the voyage, Edith could have been pictured wearing the latest in fashion trends, including this long, elegant chandelier style necklace.
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.
