Premier Exhibitions, Inc. Announces New Traveling Exhibit, Jewels of Titanic, Set to Shine for a Limited Time in Atlanta, Orlando and Las Vegas
ATLANTA, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Fifteen of the most prestigious artifacts recovered from the wreck site of Titanic have been gathered into one of the most dazzling collections ever assembled and will go on display November 16(th). As part of a three-city tour, Jewels of Titanic, presented by Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and Titanic The Experience, features diamonds, sapphires, pearls and gold jewelry that once belonged to some of Titanic’s wealthiest passengers. Debuting in Atlanta with future engagements in Orlando and Las Vegas, Jewels of Titanic shares the story of the jewelry’s discovery, underwater recovery, mysterious lineage and the influence these artifacts have in today’s pop culture.
For more than 100 years, the mystique of R.M.S. Titanic’s sailing and subsequent sinking has captured the world’s imagination. Hailed as the most luxurious ocean liner the world had ever seen, Titanic’s manifest for the doomed maiden voyage had some of wealthiest and most well-known individuals of the day. As the Ship sank beneath the icy waters of the North Atlantic, she claimed more than 1,500 lives and took all the treasures she carried on board to a watery grave 2.5 miles beneath the ocean surface.
These priceless items were once thought to be lost forever. However, 75 years after the sinking, Premier Exhibitions, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, RMS Titanic, Inc., the salvor-in-possession of the wreck site and producers of the remarkable Titanic exhibitions, embarked on the first recovery operation to Titanic. Among the twisted steel, murky water and unidentifiable objects was an unmarked leather Gladstone bag whose contents became some of the most remarkable artifacts ever recovered – the Jewels of Titanic.
WHAT: The Jewels of Titanic will embark on a three-city tour visiting Atlanta, Orlando and Las Vegas between November 2012 and May 2013.
