The Titanic Necklace
Asprey was commissioned by 20th Century Fox to make two necklaces for the 1997 box office hit Titanic. The necklace was worn at the Oscars by Celine Dion, who won Best Song.
Made in Italy to an exclusive Asprey design, the Game and Crosshatch collection has been made by leading hand-cut lead crystal craftspeople from 24% lead crystal. This material has been used for centuries to make luxury glass, being noted for its high refractive index which causes the glass to sparkle beautifully. The crystal is blown into a mould, engraved, then hand polished, with the full process taking over 15 hours and involving five different craftspeople.
