Dorothy Gibson was a first class passenger who boarded the Titanic in France at the age of 22. Dorothy Winifred Brown Gibson was a well-known movie star in 1912. She lived in Hoboken, New Jersey before she was "discovered." Dorothy worked as a singer and dancer in a number of Broadway musicals and got even more attention as the original "Harrison Fisher Girl." Her face appeared on everything from magazine covers and postcards to several kinds of merchandise. Dorothy Gibson would likely bow and accept this beautiful rose as her standing ovation.
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.
