Well, the secret is out!! Lady Duff Gordon boarded the Titanic incognito to avoid those wretched photographers awaiting her arrival in New York. Of course, if you're as famous as she was, you must expect such intrusions. She is an international superstar Lucy, Lady Duff-Gordon, known for her couture fashion designs. But it wasn't always so. Lady Duff was practically penniless until her skill as a seamstress helped her raise enough money to open Maison Lucile in a ritzy part of London. She developed a skill for designing unique "personality" dresses for her wealthy clients and finishing the designs with her signature handmade flowers. She also attracted the attention of Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon. They married and he introduced her to the society of European royals. Sir Cosmo fiancially backed Lucile Ltd to sell her designs around the world. Lady Duff wrote the weekly fashion page for the Hearst newspaper, monthly columns for Harper's Bazaar and Good Housekeeping magazines. She also developed a line for Sears, Roebuck and Company, contracted to design interiors for limousines and town cars for Chalmers Motor or known today as Chrysler Corporation. Lady Duff's dramatic use of color and sheer fabrics were a sensation in her salons in Paris, London and New York.

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. Join JTV as we embark upon a journey of adventure and elegance and mark the 100th year of the Titanic's maiden voyage. Read More

Review This Product
WAS A LET DOWNPurchased this item on JTV auction site. Was really disappointed when I received it as I felt that it was a bit cheap looking. Would have returned it but the shipping costs would have been more than the cost of the actual pendant. This is NOT an item worth paying full price for. January 15, 2014
