14K Gold Emerald Box Ring Atocha Re-creation

$2,495.00

Sold Out

This beautiful box ring is an authentic replica of one recovered from one of Spain’s Treasure Galleons.  The Box Ring is so called because of the totally enclosed box-like bezel holding the gem stone.  The sculptural design around the bezel continues seamlessly underneath to form a miniature treasure chest cradling and protecting the stone.  Princess Catherine, King Phillip II’s daughter, can be seen wearing a Box Ring in one of her portraits. While we don’t know whether or not the original ring was made in the New World, the gold smith’s work definitely reflects a blend of Incan and Mayan motifs.

14K Gold Emerald Ring is made with a portion of Atocha Silver or Gold.  Comes with certificate of Authenticity.
