titanic's lost jewels

I want to know what happened to all of the first class safes and all the jewels that were in them? Were they ever recovered?

As a rule, First Class passengers never traveled with valuble Jewels. Rather, had a vast array of suitable costume jewelry to wear on their travels. Because of high insurance premiums, valubles were often kept in a bank safe deposit box, not one in a hotel safe or purser's safe. There was no "heart of the ocean" that existed at the time.
