Thanks to the Titanic's 100th anniversary, this was a banner weekend for memorabilia collectors. The Manhattan branch of auction house Bonhams sold a first-class dinner menu for $25,000, a piece of the ship's carpeting for $15,000, and a ticket to the launch for $45,000. And one anonymous bidder paid $1,600 for a replica of the "Heart of the Ocean" jewel from the 1997 movie. [NYDN]
