Photo by David Paul Morris/Getty Images(COPENHAGEN, Denmark) -- Danish police belief the theft of a necklace that was recovered from the Titanic wreckage was part of an “inside job.”

The necklace was discovered missing from a showcase at Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens amusement park Saturday morning.

Valued at $19,300, the necklace was on show as part of a traveling exhibition of expensive trinkets that sank with the “unsinkable” Titanic in the early-morning hours of April 15, 1912.

The piece was originally owned by first-class passenger Eleanor Wildener, a Philadelphia woman. She survived the disaster, which killed 1,517 people.

Tivoli Gardens, located in Copenhagen, Denmark, is the second oldest amusement park and fairground in Europe. It opened to the public on August 15, 1843.
