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 gemstone. 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.
Sterling Silver Amethyst Box Ring Atocha Re-creation is made with a portion of Atocha Silver. It comes with a certificate of Authenticity.
