QVC Marks Titanic Anniversary with Commemorative Collection
You’ll probably never be able to afford that “Heart of the Ocean” necklace, but QVC wants to help you have at least a little piece of Titanic lore. With the 100th anniversary of the ship’s demise approaching, the shopping network is selling several items inspired by the story, all developed with the help of RMS Titanic — the company that rescues artifacts from the boat.
Included in the Titanic Collection 100th Anniversary Line — which debuts on TV on Friday, April 6 at 8 p.m. ET and is available in part now on qvc.com — is a diamond filigree sterling cuff (top, $499) inspired by the design of an evening bag found among the wreckage.
Other goods include a sterling and 14-karat-gold-clad first class key pendant ($88), a white topaz and diamond sterling ring ($184), vintage-style diamond drop earrings ($390), a themed charm bracelet (bottom, $239) and more. There are also home goods (like replica flatware), gifts (paperweights and framed coins) and a commemorative fragrance, Legacy 1912 Titanic.
April 14 marks the 100-year anniversary of the Titanic’s iceberg collision; to mark the sad occasion, tributes including museum exhibits, auctions, television specials and more are taking place throughout the month. In addition, the 1997 film Titanic hit theaters Tuesday night in 3D. Tell us: Will you buy a memento inspired by the Titanic?
