Lucile Carter, wife of William Carter of the Philadelphia Carters, one of the most prominent families in the city. The stylish Mrs. Carter was a Baltimore debutante of impeccable social pedigree that linked her with President James Polk and the Peale family of painters. A popular member of Philadelphia society, she was described as a stylish woman with an "hourglass figure and Gibson Girl hair." Her 1896 Baltimore marriage to William Ernest Carter was described in The Sun as being "one of the social events of the season."Billy" whom she was often called, and her two children had traveled to Europe for a year long vacation and were returning to the states with her maid, Mr. Carter's manservant, his chauffeur and a brand new Renault automobile and of course, they never went anywhere without their beloved Airedale and King Charles Spaniel. Upon seeing the ship, everything she had heard about its magnificence was true! Lucile was especially enamored of the Grand Staircase because it provided her the opportunity to make a dramatic entrance into the first-class saloon. She knew that the internationally famous couturier, Lady Duff-Gordon was on the Titanic and wagered that half of the women in first class would be wearing her gowns. Lucile wondered what she would be wearing. And of course, could not out shine her!

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

Review This Product
Lose this chainThis is actually a very pretty pendant, with nice detail and pretty red "stones." I could have given it a higher rating had it not been paired with an ugly, dull chain. A better quality of chain, or even none, would have made this item look more expensive and elegant. June 16, 2014
