    Okay, let's clear this up: the "Heart of the Ocean" diamond necklace that Kate Winslett/Rose wears in the blockbuster movie 'Titanic' is not a real diamond. It's actually a blue cubic zirconium made by London jewelers Asprey & Garrad. The jewelers did later make a reproduction using real gems (including a heart-shaped Ceylon sapphire that weighs in at a whopping 170 carats). The value of that necklace? Around $3.5 million.

    Note: Legendary jeweler Harry Winston also created a reproduction of the Heart of the Ocean necklace using a 15 carat blue diamond. A real one. Gloria Stuart wore that stunner to the Oscars. It's value? Oh, a mere $20 million.
