The historic details of the sinking of the Titanic ship are interesting though tragic. One account claims that a big blue sapphire pendant was present on the Titanic at the time of it's sinking. Remember that these are details of the original Titanic and not the movie. Since the big heart sapphire in this historic pendant was a blue sapphire, the pendant was called THE HEART OF THE OCEAN. No one really has clear proof regarding the origin (mining source) of the big blue sapphire heart shaped gem in the pendant. From all accounts, it would most likely have come from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). The titanic sank in the year 1912, which is not very long ago. It is therefore possible that the blue sapphire heart gemstone in the heart of the ocean pendant, came from Kashmir.

The famous, Heart Of Ocean Pendant worn by Kate Winslet in the 1997 movie 'Titanic'.

We now come to more recent times, 1997 and the release of the classic move Titanic. A story of love and tragedy and a movie that stole the limelight at the Oscar Awards the next year (1998). The producers of the movie included the basic theme of the big heart pendant in the story. In the movie Kate Winslet wears the historic heart of the ocean pendant, supposed to be the big sapphire heart pendant. The movie showed the center heart shaped blue gem surrounded with diamonds. The interesting fact is that, the center gem was not a big heart shaped sapphire, it was a cheap man made CZ (cubic zirconium) stone. No details are available regarding the surrounding diamonds for the big heart pendant. They could also be white CZ gems which cost next to nothing. The cost of making this necklace and pendant was believed to be 10,000 U.S$. This would mean that the 'diamonds' in that necklace and pendant were cheap CZ and not genuine diamonds. The entire set was made in white gold.

The big heart pendant in the movie brought about some interesting reactions. Remember that the big heart shaped pendant in the movie was itself a fake, a replica you could say. It was not the real big heart sapphire penadant that, historic records claim was aboard the ship when it sank in 1912. Some enterprising business houses, started making cheap replicas of the big blue gemstone pendant shown in the movie. Some even called it the Heart Of Ocean pendant replica! The gems were cheap CZs much like those used in the heart pendant shown in the movie Titanic. The metal was most probably silver or something even cheaper than that. These cheap pendants flooded the markets. They started selling these heart pendants for around 20 U.S$ to a few hundred dollars. The price dropped as the movie moved to the back of peoples minds. If you want to know what happened to the big heart blue cz pendant used to shoot the movie, we can tell you that it is with the Twentieth Century Fox studios.

The story does not end here, there was a really a real big heart sapphire pendant made. Though the Kaisilver team could not gather any information on the big heart sapphire pendant that, was aboard the Titanic ship when it sank in 1912, we tracked the events that happened after the movie Titanic was made. Kaisilver learnt that the same London jeweler (prefer to withold the name) who made the CZ heart pendant for the movie, made a real sapphire pendant. A stunning 170 carat heart shaped Ceylon blue sapphire was set in platinum. The diamonds around the center heart shaped sapphire gem stone weighed a total of around 36 carats. There were 65 diamonds in all, in the sapphire heart pendant.

This real big heart sapphire pendant was priced at an impressive 3.5 million U.S$. Let us now see why and how it was finally sold for an amount far less than it's original price. It was agreed that the big blue sapphire and diamond pendant, would be sold for just 2.2 million U.S$ on one important condition. For this deep price reduction to happen, Celine Dion would need to wear the stunning platinum sapphire pendant to the Academy Awards Ceremony for the year 1998. She did wear it in grand style and sang the big hit, 'My Heart Will Go On' at the ceremony. The London jeweler then sold the stunning pendant to one of his wealthy customers.
