Lady Duff Gordon boarded the Titanic incognito to avoid those wretched photographers awaiting her arrival in New York. Of course, if you were as famous as she was, you must expect such intrusions. Lucy, Lady Duff Gordon, was an international superstar known for her couture fashion designs. But it wasn't always that way. Lady Duff was practically penniless until her skill as a seamstress helped her raise enough money to open Maison Lucile in a ritzy part of London. She also attracted the attention of Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon. They married and he introduced her to the society of European royals. That is exactly why you might have seen Lady Duff Gordon adorned in this Couture Cameo Collection, which is perfect for fashion forward ladies of style.
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.
