Argene del Carlo, 22, boarded Titanic in Cherbourg as a Second Class passenger with husband Sebastiano, heading for the new promises of America. It was an exciting time filled with many new beginnings ? she was recently married, departing Italy for a new land and carrying her and Sebastiano?s first born. Argene already knew her journey on the Titanicwould change her life dramatically, but as she stepped onto the unsinkable ship, she did not know her life was about to take many more unexpected turns. Sebastiano was lost when the ship sank, leaving Argene to protect herself and their unborn child. Thankfully, she was rescued by one of the lifeboats and delivered to the Carpathia, where she was looking after a baby that had been separated from its mother. Reportedly, this baby was Philip Aks, who was reunited with his mother Leah Aks after she correctly identified the location of the infant?s birthmark. After the Carpathia brought her safely to the American shore, Argene made her way to Chicago, although ultimately, she returned to Italy after her baby was born, married again and lived there for the remainder of her life.
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, pearls.
