The Titanic Necklace Stolen

And it had to be green!

A gold-plated necklace recovered from the Titanic has been stolen from an exhibition at Copenhagen's Tivoli amusement park.  

Park spokesman Torben Planks says the alarm did not sound when the jewelry disappeared Saturday morning. "The showcase has not been broken into and the alarm didn't go off," Plank said, adding police were investigating the theft. "It is pretty embarrassing."

A $1,380 reward has been offered for information leading to the retrieval of the necklace.
Exhibition owner Luis Ferreiro said the necklace has an insurance value of $19,300 but he doubted it could be sold because it is known internationally.

"It was very important piece. The artifacts tell stories about the people aboard," Ferreiro told The Associated Press.

(The green stone is hard to see without magnifying, but believe me, it's green!)
