Madeleine Talmage Force Astor, quite the charmer! She and her husband were the most talked about couple on the Titanic, so let me tell you a few things before the gossips do. People talk, not because he's the richest man aboard, or becauseMadeleine was a year younger than his 19-year-old son, or because he's more than twice her age. People have always talked about everything he does because he's John Jacob Astor IV, which is why Madeleine planned for weeks preparing for this extravagant trip and why she knows everyone will be anxious to see what jewels she will be wearing! You can almost hear the gasps from the ladies wishing they could look just likeMadeleine Astor...the Titanic Princess.

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 it's time, draped in every luxury imaginable,?but so were it's passengers. The women of the Titanic would plan for months to bring just the right fashionable apparel to bring aboard such a luxurious ship. From planning on which outing to wear the perfectly tailored suit, the famous tunic top and pencil long skirt or an extravagant ball gown. Along with extensive outfit planning came the accessories...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 on naturalism, involving unusual designs within a symmetrical frame encompassing foliage, leaves, enamel, pearls, crystals and gemstones. Edwardian designs included more formal jewelry; tiaras, brooches, rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and sautoir necklaces. Many set with brilliant gemstones, diamonds, crystals and of course, pearls. Join JTV as we embark upon a journey of adventure and elegance and mark the 100th year of the Titanic's maiden voyage.

Review This Product
Exquisite Vintage Edwardian TreasureI have admired this piece; read the wonderful reviews, etc., for some time,and finally, when I recently was fortunate enough to win the high bid, at an extremely incredible price, I might add, for this necklace on the JTV Auction Website, I was beyond thrilled and ecstatic. The package arrived to my home several days ago, and when I opened up the box; took the piece out of the blue velvet pouch, where it was nestled, I instantly fell even more in love with this elegant, beautiful, sophisticated piece of Edwardian History; a true heirloom, which I will delight in wearing now; then, later on, pass along to my grand-daughter, who just celebrated her first birthday, and is already a beautiful, fashion, "it" girl (she adores jewelry and clothing,especially the jewelry and clothing that her grand-mama Adrienne wears. I am a long-time fashion stylist and magazine editor (American and European magazines), and my areas of specialization embrace writing about and styling a wide range of vintage and moderne clothing and jewelry. Also, I have been an antique and vintage collector and dealer for the past ten years (I sell to a discerning American and European clientele at many fine Antique and Collectibles Shows, in and around New York City, where I live). In all that I do; everything that I personally collect and wear, I am always seeking out and searching everywhere for the best and most gorgeous; unique and highly exclusive antique, vintage, and moderne fashion and jewelry items at a variety of private Estate and Tag sales, Auctions (live and online), etc. As an extremely particular and well-educated buyer and collector, I realize the importance and historical value of this Edwardian necklace. I will definitely wear this unique piece to the next fashion party coming up in NYC, and I will be wearing this necklace everywhere during the upcoming NYC Fashion Week event at Lincoln Center later this year, where I am quite sure that I will be photographed many times, all around town, at all of the runway shows, parties and press events, which I attend during Fashion Week. In closing, I just want to say that I am in agreement 100% with the reviewer who notes that she knows well (as do I) about the high value and worth, of many of the coveted, antique Eisenberg pieces, which if even found anyplace today (nearly impossible) can (and often do) command the same type of stratospheric prices as the most haute couture, luxurious fine jewels, found at an array of the most well-known and highly desirable jewelers; such as Tiffany, Cartier, Van Cleef &Arpels, Harry Winston, and the like; pieces worn by more than just a few of the equally well-known and highly desirable grande dames, socialites. First Ladies, Princesses, and Movie Stars; the ilk of Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth; Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Grace of Monaco, Her Royal Highness Yasmine Khan, et al. I am quite certain that this glorious Edwardian necklace is in excellent company with many of the incredible jewels worn by these illustrious and fashionable women. Now, with all of this being said, I will look forward with great pleasure to not only owning and adding the matching Edwardian bracelet to my collection, but also, having the chance to wear such a marvelous and one-of-a-kind ensemble with my very best vintage clothing. Simply fabulous. J'adore. April 20, 2014

Beautiful piece!I am not one who usually purchases jewelry that is not of a precious metal....like sterling, at the very least...or gold.....but this is such a pretty piece and had a great review...and of course the romance of having a piece replicating one that someone owned so very long ago and with such a significant history,,,so I decided to give it a try. Wow. It is so very lovely. I had to keep it. Next will come the bracelet to go with. Don't know where I will wear these pieces....but will worry about that later. Just owning them is joyful.

Art Deco BrillianceI received the companion bracelet to this piece and because I was so impressed with the quality of it, I purchased this necklace. It is the most expensive piece in the Titanic collection, but I have to say that it is well worth the price. The quality of the piece, from the crystals to the geometric shapes so effectively used in the Art Deco period, looks like something that has geniune gemstones, either white sapphires, white topaz or even diamonds. This piece could even pass for a Bella Luce piece because of how well done it is. This piece along with the bracelet are really not everyday pieces of jewelry in my opinion, but are perfect for a night on the town or a formal event. They are quite noticeable across the room and striking. I have a four carat diamond and baguette ring that I wear and the stones compliment my ring quite well. The average person would not be able that this is not high end jewelry. This piece reminds me of the high end costume jewelry such as Eisenberg used by the movie studios during the Golden age of Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s. The Eisenberg pieces from this period can command very high prices in today's market and I predict that this necklace and the companion bracelet will be in similar company in the future. I cannot wait to wear both of them and get everyone's reactions to them. Absolutely gorgeous, something like Elizabeth Taylor would have worn. April 29, 2013
