First look at our jewellery inspired by Titanic artefacts

6

Amy necklaceThe world is both enthralled and horrified by the Titanic disaster, and with the 100th anniversary of the tragedy on Saturday 14th April, the fascination will only get greater.

Designed to be the last word in comfort and luxury, it wasn't just the wealthy passengers possessions that were beautiful, but also all that surrounded them, from the benches on the deck to the ornate window grates - every inch of RMS Titanic was rich in style and design.

So to commemorate the anniversary, QVC has commissioned designs based on jewellery, accessories and parts of the ship itself found on the wreck of the Titanic. The range will be launching on Tuesday 10th April at 6pm, but you can sneak a peek at the collection now.


To talk you through each piece we will be joined by guest Paul-Henry Nargeolet, a leading authority on the Titanic wreck and leader of five expeditions to recover artefacts.

Here's how you can wear a piece of history…

Diamond and sapphire ringSapphire and diamond sterling silver ring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This delicate piece was found amazingly intact, and is expected to have been owned by a young first-class passenger. The original (above left) was in platinum with 18 carat gold and had exceptional quality stones. This beautiful ring has been remade by pairing the diamonds and sapphire with sterling silver (above right).

Cocktail ring Blue topaz and diamond sterling silver ring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although it is unknown for sure who this cocktail ring belonged to, it is speculated that it would have been one of the wealthiest passengers onboard. The Art Deco-style design of this silver and diamond ring gives it a three-dimensional depth as it highlights the Edwardian love of imitating lace in jewellery.

  Ornamental window gratePrasiolite and diamond sterling silver drop earrings

 

 

 

 

These silver earrings are based on the decorative window grate in the first-class saloon and dining room. We selected prasolite to reflect the interior design of the room which contained soft shades of green.

Gold mesh bagSterling silver leaf band ring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This gold purse with Mummy head closure suggests that the passenger had travelled to Egypt prior to going onboard the Titanic. Inspiration has been taken from the leaf design in the frame to create this sterling silver band ring.  

Don't forget to tune in to QVC TV on Tuesday 10th April at 6pm to see the premier with Paul-Henry Nargeolet, and visit QVC online to see the full range.

    I am in love with the Art Deco ring, it’s what I have been looking for, for a long time!!
    Will there be more sizes released or is it just the sizes shown?

    I wanted to go to this exhibit the last time we stayed here in late 2010. I was worried by the time we came back it would be gone. Well, worry no more. They have this exhibit for ten years and it started in 2008, so folks, you still have time.
