The Epic Launch Collection is created with an Art Deco influence, in keeping with the era in which the Titanic was built. Elegant monotone hues are incorporated on the Titanic box through the use of the soft creamy Sycamore backdrop and ship funnels teamed with the Ebony portholes and the black veneers that flow down onto the lid front to denote the hull of the ship. The exterior is french polished to enhance the streamlined marquetry depicting the Titanic.

The box interior, just like the Titanic, is divided into three main sections – the upper fixed tray (first class) which features a porthole style ring run with a complementary ring ledge for optimum ring viewing. A brass plaque has been fitted to the inner lid and engraved with an abstract image of the ship while the brass escutcheon further enhances the nautical feel as an impressive streamlined ship. The box front opens to reveal two hidden levels – the middle and lower lift out trays (second and third class). The second tray is fitted with several compartments for beads and earrings as wells as a space at the front for a watch or bracelet. The final level is lined in suede and suitable for larger items such as necklaces. Each level has a handle created from ebony with polyester white inlays. The hardware (lock, key and hinges) is traditional brass.

Abstract boat designs are used on the accompanying tug boat boxes with the addition of exotic Bubinga to the marquetry further differentiating them from the Ship. All boxes interiors are lined in rich black lamb nappa with the tug box bases moulded into portholes, making them suitable to hold trinkets and rings.
