DORAVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Most of the jewelry recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic will begin a three-city tour, its first public display since being salvaged from the ocean depths.
In a nondescript industrial office in north Atlanta, Premier Exhibitions Inc. and RMS Titanic Inc. officials previewed the artifacts before they go on display Friday in Atlanta.
Alexandra Klingelhofer, vice president of collections for RMS Titanic Inc., says the purpose of the exhibit is to enlighten the public of the wonder of exploration.
The jewelry recovered 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.
