Well... I watched Discovery Channel's 1998 documentary Titanic Live, and I was especially amazed by the shots of the inside of the Grand Staircase, or what's left of it on the wreck.

And there's an object on the wreck, which confused me a lot. It's a large, pink polygonal object, hanging down from a rope or candle.

Unfortunately, I can't take stills of it because I have the documentary recorded from TV on a videotape. However, I'll try to take a still of it with my cell phone as soon as I get home (and post it here, if I'm allowed to).

What is that object?

From your description, it sounds like the octagonal base of a light fixture hanging from the ceiling. Check out page 74 of Lynch & Marschall's "Ghosts of the Abyss" for a photo of such a fixture on the wreck and a photo of what it looked like with the cut glass bowl intact.
