Davy Jones has a pawn shop down there
It signified the lack of foresight humans have when faced with nostalgia.
one word "senile" =I
she is throwing her 'sexuality' (her Jewel) to Jack in an ex<x>pression of loyalty and love
I just thought it was stupid!!
Seem to be a lot of people who didn't understand so just rubbished it. I wouldn't go as a far as making the necklace a symbol of sexuality, but otherwise Elixabelle and a few others are right.<br />
Rose knew perfectly well what she was doing. <br />
She wasn't senile at all, as some of you Philistines seem to think.<br />
It had been her link with Jack for all those years, and dropping it back into his grave was her farewell to him. The treasure-hunters would not find a tiny ob<x>ject like that in a sizeable area of sea-floor and corroding wreckage, besides the story suggested they'd finished their search. <br />
If you remember, in one of the film's key but least credible scenes the treasure-hunters had opened the safe and unexpectedly found the drawing - equally-unexpectedly intact - but not the necklace. They could only assume that either it was lost for good elsewhere on or around the wreck, or had survived but was now in another's ownership. An example of dramatic irony for us (audience) to discover.<br />
Rose did not let on that she still had it, did she? She told everyone else on the survey ship her story, including that of the picture; but do I recall correctly that she told no-one that she still had the necklace? Also, she crept out alone to drop the jewellery into the ocean - to send it to Jack. <br />
I've sometimes thought it would have made an interesting film - for women more than men as it would have been largely romances - to have developed the leading characters' lives between rescue and treasure-hunt. Rose met and married someone else; her selfish fiance, we learnt, made (and lost?) a lot of money investing in railways. The only fly in the ointment was in giving Hollywood another excuse for its traditional Britain-bashing!
nothing, she was insane.
She didn't want to live of Cal's money. It was her way of letting go and keeping her promise to Jack.
It was closure for her...and it was where it belonged
who cares, its a movie
She sent it down to where it belonged. With the expiriances on the ship. And the dreams she had! In her view thats where it belonged!
I mean the jewel was called 'The Heart of the Ocean'. I mean the theories about this are scattered. She was sort of a wild spirit while younger. I sort of believe that because Jack made her promise her to live 'selfishly' that she kept that necklace, (Until she absolutely knew she was going to pass away in the night, how convenient she was over the Titanic when she did.) throwing it over the railing so that Jack would know she lived how she promised she would. Regardless if The Heart of the Ocean was found by the 'treasure hunters.'
I know right?? xD
It was a sacrifice to Poseidon, by which she survived while abandoning her one true love (that guy she's just met and ******** for--you know how deep those relationships are)
To part ways with her old life and leave it there so researchers can find it later and fight over it's value.
