Titanic Treasures on Display

Posted: Nov. 23rd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Atlanta has a rare, historic treasure on display: recovered from the depths of the Titanic's sunken wreckage, jewelry from a passenger's bag is the centerpiece of a new Titanic dedicated exhibit. Coming on the heels of Atlanta's earlier "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, which opened in April on the centennial of the Titanic's disastrous final voyage, the exhibit is dedicated to the wonders of exploration.

Most of the jewelry recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic will go on public display for the first time with a three-city tour.

The jewelry is from a single purser's bag found during a 1987 research and recovery mission. The collection includes diamond and sapphire rings, brooches, necklaces, cuff links and a gold pocket watch.

Although single pieces of the jewelry have been on display at one or more permanent and traveling exhibits sponsored by Premier Exhibitions Inc., their Atlanta debut is the first time the majority of the collection has been available to the public.
