I decided to write this. I watched Titanic yesterday night. Now I am writing this. Hope you like it!
Many of you might not have heard of the La Couer de la Mer. Even if you do, I am going to tell you. La Couer de la Mer, or Heart of the Ocean, is worn by Kate Winslet, playing Rose DeWitt Bukater, in the movie Titanic. Many believe the jewel is not real, but it turns out it may have belonged to RMS Titanic survivor Kate Florence Phillips. A recreation was giving to Cameron Diaz by her husband. I still believe the La Coeur de la Mer was real, but it remains a mystery to this day. What is your verdict? Real or Fake?

You probably don't know me, since I don't frequent the journalism boards, but I just wanted to get my two cents in on this.  According to Wikipedia the La Couer de la Mer is fictional, but is based on a real gem called the Hope Diamond and possibly a sapphire necklace that a real Titanic survivor wore. 
I do not believe it was real due to all the inaccuracies in Titanic, though I do believe it may have been inspired by a similar necklace.
