Is it Real(Heart of the ocean)? : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

Was the 'Heart of The Ocean' real? I read that it was and it is still in the wreck today.

Hi Ian,

Nope, the Heart Of The Ocean was a prop that was used purely for Brock (Bill Paxton) to meet Rose and hear her story.

After the movie they did create a real Heart Of The Ocean which sold for several million which was then donated to a Diana charity. I believe Celine Dion's husband bought it for her.

I hope this helps. There is another thread somewhere with heaps more info but I'm not sure where it is exactly.

Go to the "merchandise" category and select the thread "Heart of the Ocean Replica." There's lots of stuff that you might want to read, including the link to the real Hope Diamond and its story (currently on display in the Smithsonian Museum).
