Roberta Maioni was the young maid of the Countess of Rothes. Not unlike the exciting romance depicted in that famous movie, Roberta found love at first sight aboard the Titanic. He was a dashing young steward whose smile made her quiver. The two managed to steal brief moments away, out of sight of their employers, until a great crush of ice brought their romantic meetings to an end. As the ship began to sink, the young man found Roberta, wrapped her in a lifejacket, unpinned his White Star Line badge from his uniform and handed it to her as a lasting reminder of their unrequited love. They embraced one last time, then he placed Roberta in a lifeboat and whispered, "Never forget me." With tears streaming down her cheeks, she promised she never would; and she never did.
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.
