People said the Titanic was the largest, most elegant ship afloat, but Elisabeth Walton Allen, age 29 from Missouri, had to see it for herself. One day at sea was all it took to make Elisabeth a believer! Elisabeth had crossed the ocean a time or two before but never as glamorously as that. She was on board with her aunt and cousin after spending the winter in England. Elisabeth and her relatives were returning to St. Louis where her fiance was waiting for her. Elisabeth could certainly be known as an upcoming "newbie" to the socialite arena, which is precisely why she may have been wearing the Ingenue Earrings.
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.
