Product Description

Gold Tone Round White And Red Man-made Crystal Flower Earrings. Measures Approximately 15/16"l X 15/16"w With Clip On Backings.



Juliette Laroche was 22 years old when her family booked a trip aboard the Titanic. She had the unique distinction of being married to Joseph Philippe Laroche, the only black man aboard Titanic. Mr. Laroche was born in Haiti and the couple met in Paris while he was studying in France. He was handsome and a brilliant engineering student. It was love at first sight and the two of them were married a few years after Mr. Laroche earned his degree. Mr. Laroche's dark skin made it difficult to secure employment. Even as liberated as France was in 1912, many employers refused to hire him. Their growing family required better job prospects, so the family decided to move to Haiti where his family was prospering. Passage was booked aboard the La France, French Line's newest ship. After learning that La France did not let children eat with their parents, Mr. and Mrs Laroche switched passage to Titanic, a larger, more elegant ship. They were happy with the turn of events until a much larger event arrived that could not be switched. Juliette had pride in her husband's heritage and would have been seen wearing bold, passionate tropical jewelry inspirations.

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. Join JTV as we embark upon a journey of adventure and elegance and mark the 100th year of the Titanic's maiden voyage. Read More

LUSCIOUS TROPICAL LOOKPLEASE don't pass these earrings up, or the necklace that matches!! The "gold' looks 18 kt.,rich and buttery. The crystals are gorgeous- the white resemble diamonds and the red like tiny, bright rubies. It's a bit over 1" long and just perfect for hot summer nights.These are clip-ons, and I've worn mine with confidence. It doesn't get better than this! March 26, 2014
