Heart-Shaped Sapphire and Diamonds Titanic Necklace Replica
Treat your loved one or yourself with our stunning Titanic necklace inspired by the Heart of The Ocean Necklace from the 1997 Titanic movie. This beautiful necklace is surrounded by sparkling diamante crystals and a heart-shaped blue sapphire style stone. It’s a wonderful recreation of the cubic zirconia white gold Titanic necklace featured in the Oscar winning movie.
Titanic is the well-loved romance and disaster film which was written, directed, and co-produced by James Cameron. This blockbuster movie starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo di Caprio was based on the actual sinking of RMS Titanic, the British ship.
The film grossed over $2 billion (£1.5 billion) and has captured many hearts and imaginations, stirring up fresh fascination in the Titanic story.
In the film, the Heart of the Ocean is a stunning blue sapphire and diamond necklace. The necklace is seen in the scene where Kate Winslet, who plays Rose, has her portrait drawn by Leonardo di Caprio, who plays Jack. The necklace is all she is wearing in that particular scene. Right at the end of the movie, Rose throws the necklace into the ocean.
Whether it’s for a special occasion or a present for your loved one, our Titanic necklace is the perfect piece of jewellery and will make a memorable gift!

Titanic: Heart of the Ocean Questions
Did the Heart of the Ocean Necklace Really Exist?
Also known as Le Coeur de la Mer, the Heart of the Ocean is the name of the blue diamond featured in the movie. Although the Heart of the Ocean is fictitious, it is based on a real diamond: the 45.52-carat Hope Diamond, which has a value of approximately $350 million (£260 million).
However, according to the Washington times, the Heart of the Ocean necklace is not complete fiction. Kate Florence Phillips, aged nineteen, owned the impressive diamond which was called Love of the Sea. It was given to her as a gift by Henry Samuel Morley, her 39-year old boss and married lover, as the pair sailed on the Titanic.
According to the story, Henry bought second class tickets using the pseudonyms Mr and Mrs Marshall, so the couple could elope to San Francisco. Although Henry was a married man and had a daughter in England, he had fallen in love with his young shop assistant.
Kate wore the necklace in the Titanic dining rooms, and still had it on when the ship hit the iceberg. Morley was unable to swim and drowned, while Kate survived with nothing apart from the necklace.
Who Created the Heart of the Ocean Necklace?
Asprey & Garrard, jewellers based in London, designed these necklaces for use in the films. They had cubic zirconia’s in white gold for an Edwardian look. Three unique designs were produced, two of which were used in the movie. Today, these pieces are kept in Twentieth Century Fox’s archives.
Following on from the success of Titanic, Asprey & Garrard were commissioned to make a real 170-carat heart-shaped necklace using Sri Lankan blue sapphire. This stone was encircled with 103 round white diamonds totally 30 carats, and hung on an 18-inch white diamond-studded chain.
Later the piece was sold for $2.2 million (£1.6 million) at a charity auction in Beverly Hills. One condition of sale was that recording artist Celine Dion would wear the necklace at the ceremony where she sang the film’s theme song, ‘My Heart Will Go On’. The proceeds were awarded to the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund.
