Annie Stengel was a first class passenger aboard the Titanic. She and her husband loved to travel and had been vacationing for a month in Europe. The couple had the ability to travel because Charles Stengel was principal of the leather-manufacturing firm Stengel & Rothschild. A very profitable business Mrs. Stengel would say. The Titanic experience was like an extension of their European trip; because each day was filled with fine dining, live concerts, cocktail parties and interesting people. That evening the couple retired around 10pm, within minutes they were making a dash for the lifeboats, Annie in her kimono over her nightdress and Charles not fully dressed either. The couple was separated and Annie was placed in a lifeboat without her husband. Just when she sat down, a man leapt into the boat on top of her, cracking some ribs. She said the pain was awful but the agony of possibly losing her husband was far more excruciating. During the many cocktail parties you may have seen Annie wearing this exquisite necklace and it almost resembles the black leather from her husbands notable company.

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
