This beautiful Lace Ring is an authentic replica of one recovered from the 1715 Fleet wreck site on Florida’s east coast. The square- cut stone is set in a lacy Baroque design popular among the aristocracy of 18th Century Spain. The loss of this fleet was a severe personal blow to Spain’s King Phillip V. His first wife Marie Louise had died in 1714. Seven months later he married Isabella Farnese, but she would not consummate the marriage until she had received a large dowry of jewels, and a substantial portion of these jewels, possibly including your Lace Ring, was aboard these ships.
Comes with certificate of Authenticity.
