A young woman traveling alone on a mighty ship like the Titanic is certain to raise eyebrows, but she could care less. She would be Constance Willard, a headstrong, liberated and fearless lady. Actually, she is not totally alone on this voyage. Her dear aunt persuaded the very wealthy William and Lucile Carter to keep an eye on her during the voyage. Avant-garde, radical, unconventional and forward-thinking are adjectives that best describe Constance. As Constance rushed to the boat deck on her own two men attempted pushed her into the lifeboats. Independent Constance put up a struggle until she realized this was not a drill. Just as the lifeboat lowered, a stranger rushed up and begged Constance to take his baby. Their eyes met, but no words were spoken as she graciously took his precious bundle and held her like it was her own.
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.
