Product Description
Titanic Jewelry Collection™, Rectangular Blue Crystal, Round White Crystal, Silver Tone Bracelet. Measures Approximately 7"l X 13/16"w With A Box Clasp Closure.

While her actual birthdate is debatable, it is widely believed that Gertrude Maybelle McMinn was born in San Francisco in 1875. At the age of 24, Gertrude became the bride of Mr. Harry Thorne. However, their union was not to be as she was widowed a few years later. She eventually made her way to Manhattan, where she became fast friends and the mistress of George Rosenshine, Co-Owner of an import company specializing in ostrich feathers. George always included his paramour Gertrude in his world travels and they timed the completion of one such trip to coincide with the Titanic's maiden voyage. Gertrude believed this would be the perfect ending to their business and pleasure trip. Boarding the ship in Cherbourg, France, George had registered them under Gertrude's last name of Thorne to avoid the possibility of scandal and gossip that could adversely affect his business. However, Gertrude and George weren't afraid of the public eye as they enjoyed themselves to the fullest, taking in the revelry and nightlife afforded to the First Class passengers. After the iceberg collided with the ship, Gertrude's life was spared as she boarded lifeboat D, the final collapsible lowered from portside into the frigid water. After her rescue, Gertrude sent two marconigrams from the rescue ship, the Carpathia. One was sent to her sister and another to George's brother, praying for his safe return to her. But alas, her beloved George perished in the disaster. After a time of mourning, Gertrude married Richard Yanke, where they resided in New York along with their maid for several years. During this time, Gertrude continued her extensive world travels with her husband Richard. Eventually, Gertrude settled in Paris with Richard. In later life, she lived with her widowed sister Maude. Gertrude Maybelle McMinn Yanke died in 1947 in Nice, France, after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage and was buried at Cimetiere de L'Est.

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, pearls. Join JTV as we embark upon a journey of adventure and elegance and celebrating the jewelry of the women aboard the Titanic.
