Show the World Your Shine

In 1961, a rock pulled from the earth passed through several international ports and many hands, on a journey to becoming the most famous diamond in the world. A billionaire's wife, keen on some new sparkle, originally obtained the rough-cut 241-carat diamond in 1966. After famed jewelry designer Harry Winston cut the stone to its 66.9-carat splendor, the wife felt offensively that the diamond was "just too big to be seen, let alone wear in New York City." The diamond would eventually find its way around the neck of actress Elizabeth Taylor three years later, in 1969, a gift of pear-shaped brilliance, dangling daintily from a diamond-encrusted Cartier necklace, from on-again-off-again, actor-husband Richard Burton after catching his eye at auction. Known the world over as The Taylor-Burton Diamond, and estimated to be worth $5 million today, Taylor wore the necklace, sporting a $1.9 million price tag only twice. Once to the high-profile 40th birthday party of former Princess (Grace Kelly) of Monaco. And once to the Academy Awards, wearing it a total of 5 minutes on live television to present Midnight Cowboy with the Best Picture statuette. Brief but brilliant, the diamond necklace’s short lived career shines bright in the memory of many an adoring fan. The legendary Taylor-Burton reputation of a love-hate-love relationship wrapped in expensive jewelry oftentimes trumped the brilliance of their potent on screen performances.

A Titanic Kind of Love

An oceanic love story's final chapter, one between a rag-tag Jack and high-society-in-training Rose, saw a ship rendered helpless by an icy kiss, and the beloved pair part with an eternal message of unrequited love, and to "never let go." But The Heart of the Ocean pendant given to Rose by her overbearing finance Cal, the bejeweled centerpiece of the film was innocently tossed overboard. All Rose wanted was to end the suffering of “the trauma that she was so well connected to: luxury, wealth and prestige.” After the necklace sinks out of sight to the bottom of the murky Atlantic, Rose returns to her cabin, falls blissfully into an eternal sleep, awakening in the afterlife to take Jack’s hand on the grand staircase. A reminder of the lives lost, and her true connection: to humankind, not material possessions.

Inspired by the infamous Hope Diamond, the imitation necklace influenced "hearts to go on" worldwide, and if real, would have cost an estimated $30 million. Such a price tag for love and vanity. Rose taught the salvage crew about human life. The selfless act of releasing the necklace to Titanic’s final resting place was a priceless gesture of love and respect.
