Titanic jewels recovered from the wreckage of Titanic will go on public display for the first time in a tri-city tour, according to reports by several international news sites, November 14, 2012.
Based on reports, Atlanta– based Premier Exhibitions Inc. announced that the 15 items, including pendants, rings and a pocket watch, will first be exhibited in Atlanta from November 16, 2012 through January 6, 2013. This will be followed by displays in Orlando and Las Vegas, through May of next year.
Alexandra Klingelhofer, Vice-President of collections for RMS Titanic Inc., mentioned that the purpose of the exhibit is to show the public the wonder of exploration.
“Going down two and a half miles below the ocean, recovering a bag, bringing it back up and opening it and finding … jewelry. We’re able to give them a glimpse of how it must have been to have opened that for the first time and to see, together, the beautiful jewelry of the Edwardian Period”, Klingelhofer said in a statement.
Recent reports also said the jewelry exhibit will be added to “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition”, opened in Atlanta earlier this year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912.
