DID YOU KNOW? The 'Heart of the Ocean' is not real. It is a fictional blue diamond. The Heart of the Ocean (also known as Le Cœur de la Mer) is the name of a fictional blue diamond featured in the 1997 hit film Titanic. In the story, the diamond was originally owned by Louis XVI and cut into a heart shape after the French Revolution. Caledon Hockley (Billy Zane), the wealthy son of a Pittsburgh steel tycoon, purchased the diamond for his fiancée Rose (Kate Winslet) Although the Heart of the Ocean didn't really exist, it was based on the real life Hope Diamond, estimated to be worth approximately £160 million.
