Sylvia Mae Caldwell was a 2nd class passenger aboard the Titanic. She and her family were on their way back to the United States after spending two years in Siam, Thailand as missionary teachers. Sylvia had a seven year contract with the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions but had to leave early due to her failing health. Sylvia and her husband Albert left their teaching posts early and the journey lead them through the Far East, the Middle East and Europe. Sylvia was seasick much of the way but by the time they reached London her condition had much improved. Aboard the great Titanic Sylvia was beginning to feel the worst was over until they hit the iceberg. She was unable to grasp the seriousness of it all and felt no need to subject her baby to the icy conditions on deck. After hearing sobering words from a crew member the Caldwell family finally decided to get in a lifeboat. Sylvia was far too weak to hold little Alden and her husband were not allowed in the boat. Sylvia had placed her family's fate into the hands of God Almighty.

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
it`s charmingI thought the "Titantic Collection" was copies of jewelry that was owned by each lady in the collection, but it only represents jewelry that was popular at the time and copies of jewelry recovered, but can not be proven who owned it. JTV did not misrepresent, I misunderstood but after reading more carefully, I do like that they named the pieces after these ladies, I see that as honoring them anyway, so I will keep my marcasite heart pendant and I will remember the touching story of this dear woman every time I wear it. Who can read about the Titanic and not be touched. The people who boarded that ship had no way of knowing they would become so famous and that in their demise they would be responsible for new laws being enacted to protect society. December 27, 2014
