Product Description

Charlotte Annie Collyer was a second-class passenger aboard the Titanic traveling with her husband Harvey Collyer and daughter, Marjorie. Charlotte was sick with tuberculosis, and friends thought that the climate in Idaho would be better for her health. The family packed everything they owned and boarded the Titanic for a new life in America. When the boat began to sink, Charlotte and Marjorie were put in lifeboat 14 while her husband Harvey remained on board with the men. Little Marjorie and her mother were absolutely destitute when they arrived in New York with nothing but the nightgowns they were wearing, but Mrs. Collyer decided to continue on to Idaho to start a new life like her late husband had wanted to do. Charlotte recalled their experience in the boat to The Semi-Monthly Magazine in May, 1912. Readers were so moved by her story, many sent money to help Charlotte and Marjorie get back on their feet. Charlotte and Marjorie eventually returned to England.

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
