Jewelry belonging to some of the Titanic's wealthiest passengers will soon be on display to the public for the first time.

The collection of diamond and sapphire rings, pearl necklaces, gold cufflinks, and a gold pocket watch will be part of a three-city tour titled Jewels of the Titanic. The display will be shown in Atlanta, then Orlando, Fla., and Las Vegas, closing in May 2013.

The exhibit will also include the story of the discovery of the jewelry, from the 1987 dive that happened by chance to find the one unmarked purser's bag that contained all of the pieces of jewelry to the detective work undertaken to discover who owned the precious stones and metals.

The exhibit is associated with Atlanta's Titanic: the Artifact Exhibition, which opened earlier this year to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's only voyage.
