Recovered Titanic jewels to go on display

Most of the jewelry recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic will go on public display for the first time with a three-city tour in Atlanta; Orlando, Fla.; and Las Vegas.

The jewelry is from a single purser's bag found during a 1987 research-and-recovery mission. The collection includes diamond and sapphire rings, brooches, necklaces, cuff links and a gold pocket watch.

Although single pieces of the jewelry have been on display at one or more permanent and traveling exhibits sponsored by Premier Exhibitions Inc., their Atlanta debut is the first time the majority of the collection has been available to the public.

The exhibit opens Friday at Premier's display gallery at the Atlantic Station gallery in Atlanta.
