Genevieve Cassebeer was of New York City and sometimes Paris. She traveled solo and was quite comfortable looking out for herself. You see, Mr. Cassebeer and Genevieve grew apart and instead of divorcing they agreed to a marriage of convenience, an arrangement the French describe as tres sophistique...very sophisticated. Fact is, she got married as a teenager and had a son. Their marriage was brief and eventually ended in divorce and a second marital strike-out was simply out of the question for her. Genevieve was used to traveling alone and may wear the Cercle de la Vie (meaning ?Circle of Life? in French) as a symbol of her independence and ?such is life? attitude.
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.
