Commemorative ring to mark Titanic centenary

 

The ring has been created in white gold with an engraved shaft, enamelled in graduated shades of blue, and features pavé set diamonds to represent the Atlantic and the iceberg. The inside of the ring is engraved with ‘RMS Titanic 1912-2012’, and a secret sapphire has been included in homage to the Heart of the Ocean, the fictitious blue diamond that features prominently in James Cameron’s 1997 Oscar-winning film.

 

Nick explains: “The Titanic story has an enduring romanticism that I find truly intriguing. It is a tragic tale that is ingrained in our collective consciousness. I was immediately drawn to the 1912 half sovereign at auction because of its tangible link to the past. It presented an opportunity to create a unique piece of jewellery that incorporates a really strong narrative element. The ship was the most opulent ocean liner of its day and the ring captures that glamour and luxury.”

 

The ring is due to be completed in late January and will retail for £15,995.
