You could say show business was her life. She lived and breathed it every single day. You see, this is Irene Harris, wife of Henry Harris, one of New York City's most powerful and talented theatrical impresarios. Henry built the famous Hudson Theatre on Broadway and has managed the careers of a number of legendary actors and actresses. Irene became the first female theatrical producer. They shared a wonderful make-believe world of glamour, sophistication, wealth and privilege and were absolutely in their element aboard the Titanic. Irene remarried four times but was quoted stating, "After all, I had 10 wonderful, happy, superb, unforgettable years with my first husband. He spoiled me for any other man in the world. I have had four marriages---but really only one husband."
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.
