It is certainly hard to believe that over one hundred years has passed since the Titanic sunk in the icy Atlantic waters. The story of that ship and the fateful events that led up to the tragic ends still strike a chord with people to this day. Scientists and Titanic buffs continue to plan voyages down to the wreckage of the Titanic to see it in all of its eerie glory and also find more sunken treasures that have gone down with it.
Titanic and the artefacts it left behind continue to entrance people to this day. The movie Titanic is one of the biggest grossing movies of all time and people still want to remember those who died on that fateful day each year when the anniversary rolls around.
Why are people so entranced by this story? Because it was the ship that was never supposed to sink. When it did, the world felt the pain of the people who lost their lives because of an over confident claim that obviously was not true. The Titanic and its story conjures up a weird love story that people still are interested in to this day.
Other people are more interested in the Titanic for other reasons. There are millions of dollars of jewels that are rumoured to still be down there and have not been recovered. The money loving artefact hounds would love to get their hands on these items because it would allow them to boast the fact that they have the famous lost items and they could sell them to collectors and make a huge profit.
People can even purchase their very own artefacts from the Titanic today. There are several companies and web sites that purportedly sell pieces from the Titanic ship or even items that were recovered from the wreckage. The people who seek out these artefacts are clearly infatuated with the story behind the Titanic and would like to have a piece of it all to them.
Be careful when decided to purchase a Titanic artefact. How do you really know that what you are buying is really from the Titanic? You can’t know for sure and it is better off that you just admire and study the story from afar rather than letting someone take your hard earning money because they claim to have something of value that they will sell to you for several hundred dollars a pop.
Really, what would you do with an artefact from the Titanic? No one will really enjoy it but you. And is it really worth spending your hard earned cash on that? Maybe you think it is, but what happens if you find out that it is not really an artefact from the Titanic and instead a piece of car from the bottom of a lake?
Instead, continue to research more into the story of the Titanic and support your hobby in that way. Save your dollars and cents for something that is more worthy of your dollars, like a charitable cause.
