Dazzling jewelry from the Edwardian Period found in one bag from the recovery of the ocean liner Titanic is being displayed in a three-city exhibition, first in Atlanta and later Orlando and Las Vegas. The collection, which includes diamond and sapphire rings, brooches, cuff links, necklaces and a gold pocket watch, is from a single purser’s bag and comprises most of the jewelry recovered from the Titanic during the 1987 research and recovery mission launched by RMS Titanic, which owns the rights to all salvage from the wreck.
