Spectacular gems, rescued from the Titanic, are exposed in several cities (Pictures)
November 12, 2012
On the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking, a spectacular collection of priceless jewels recovered from the ocean floor will be publicly exposed.
Most of the pieces that were in the ship will be available for the first time and moved into a three-city tour starting in Atlanta, Georgia.
The collection includes diamond and sapphire rings, necklaces, brooches, cufflinks and a gold pocket watch.
The exhibition is sponsored by Premier Exhibitions Inc., and is the first time that most of the collection is available to the public.
Conservators and curators were preserving the jewelry to get a better understanding of the lives of the passengers aboard.
