    Testimony of Luaurriaga, Master of Silver on Ubilla's Almiranta, 18 Nov 1716. He verifies that the Queen's jewels were delivered to Antonio de Potfis, Master of Silver on Ubilla's Capitana, who died in the disaster. The jewels were kept in Potfis' chest of clothing or portable desk, neither of which turned up in the salvage operations. He is sure, that because the currents in that area, which are very strong, that the desk or chest of clothes with the jewels were carried away like the serones or bags of indigo and cochineal.

    So you saw that old 2012 thread I see.

    should also include this then...

    List of jewels sent to the Queen aboard the Capitana of Ubilla's Flota, sent by the President of Guadalajara, Mexico.

    A. Two pair of gold earrings (drop earrings); one pair was in 3 parts, the lower part being in the shape of a pineapple with 129 pearls (very small ones); the other pair was smaller and each had 38 small pearls and on one extremity there was a gold amulet. Both pair weighed 3 and 1/16 ounces.
    B. A rosary made of coral the size of chickpeas with the "Our Father" in gold and with three small medals and a small rose also of gold, weighing 3 1/16th ounces.
    C. Two pearls in the shape of an almond, weighing 28 carats; another round pearl, weighing 8 carats; 98 inferior pearls, much smaller in size.
    D. A gold jewel in which it appears to have the image of St. Clara.
    E. Three gold rings, two plain and one with an emerald.

    Notice the Fleur de Lis in the design of the crown and the brooch. Originally a French symbol. King Philip V, a Frenchman became the King of Spain in 1701. Very controversal at the time, started the eleven year war. King Philip V was the beginning of the House of Bourbon of Spain. After hundreds of years and regime changes the House of Bourbon was restored to the throne. The current royal family is still of the House of Bourbon. Another French symbol that became attributed to Spain is the Flag of the Cross of Burgundy.
    The commonly seen flattened red cross on the white field, Spanish naval ensign, Coat of arms of Duque de Linares, the Viceroy of New Spain from 1711 - 1716, the Florida state flag and the Confederate flag.

    Miguel de Lima has told him that in the Real of the
    Refuerzo there are some jewels and treasure sent by the Viceroy of
    New Spain for the Queen. The Governor asks Armenta to have these
    sent at the earliest opportunity to Havana. Also, to help Echeverz
    in the salvage of his Capitana, because of the Royal Treasure it
    was carrying.

    The jewels that were given to Antonio de Potflis the Master of Silver came from the President Governor of the Audiencia of Guadalajara, Toribio Rodriquez de Solis. There were several Audiencias in New World Spain but the Governor of Guadalajara was second in command to the Viceroy of New World Spain and served in his role during the Viceroy's absence.

    I could see a scenario where the Viceroy would delegate to the Governor such an important task as gathering jewels for a gift for the new Queen.
