Tivoli reports that on Saturday 17 September a valuable and irreplaceable necklace was stolen from the famous international exhibition “Titanic – The Exhibition” which currently can be seen in the Hans Christian Andersen castle at Tivoli in Copenhagen, Denmark.

One or more thieves managed to gain access to a display case containing the rare and precious necklace during business hours. Police have been on the scene and will return today Monday 19 Sept to further investigate the circumstances.

“The precious necklace belonged to the Widener family who were one of the richest families on board the Titanic in 1912. The chain has an estimated value of approx. 14,000 Euro and perhaps even more, if it were sold at an auction. However, it will not be possible to sell the necklace as it is known internationally,” says Luis Ferreiro from Musealia, who owns the show.

Reward offered
The exhibition’s security was approved in April 2011 when it opened. In Copenhagen alone it has been viewed by 50,000 visitors. A reward of 1000 Euros has been offered to the person who can lead to retrieving the necklace. The organizers of the exhibition would like to hear from guests who have visited the exhibition Saturday between 10:00 to 13:00. They are advised to contact the police or to get in touch with Torben Plank at Tivoli.

The year 2012 will mark 100 years since the world-famous ship sank with 2207 people aboard. The exhibition will remain open until 30th December at Hans Christian Andersen Castle.
