Whereas the necklace used within the movie — given to Rose by her fiancé Caledon Hockley (performed by Billy Zane) and later immortalized in a drawing by her lover Jack (performed by Leonardo DiCaprio) — was commissioned to London-based luxurious British model, Asprey (previously Asprey & Garrard) and impressed by a 42.5-carat diamond extracted within the seventeenth century in India, named the Hope Diamond, replicas are offered all over the place. Nonetheless, American retailer The J. Peterman Firm, based in 1987, was the one model with official certification from twentieth Century Fox to promote replicas, which, in the present day, may be discovered on eBay for upward of $2,000. Nonetheless, that hasn’t deterred retailers like jewellery retailer Zales, which carries replicas that vary from $100 to $400, and points of interest just like the Titanic Museum in Las Vegas, which gives a $300 model, from promoting their very own replicas of the pendant. And demand is excessive: In keeping with Chloe Baffert, merchandising and curation skilled at Poshmark, gross sales for dupes elevated by 39% in December 2022, when the movie celebrated its twentieth anniversary.
