Nellie Bessette was a first class passenger aboard the Titanic. She was completely overwhelmed by the Titanic's size and could not wait to explore every inch of it. She was the personal maid to Mrs. Ella White who stayed in her cabin the entire voyage giving Nellie plenty of time to ramble around the ship. Mrs. White was only 59 years old but was so physically out of shape that it took both her manservant and Nellie to get her to the ship?s deck. Because she had taken such excellent care of Mrs. White, this ring may have been a gift to 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 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.
