I shall lay the treasure of king phillip V at my pirate queens feet....I shall lavish her with gold, platinum, and diamonds !! I will honor her with some of the royal treasure that was enroute to king phillip in 1733 before the hurricane swept it away. This beautiful 4 reale with a partial 1733 date...the date of the disaster...was found back in FEB.

Now ill take a platinum ring with diamonds, and other gold rings and have my jeweler build a gold and diamond studded mount for this beauty. All the rings ill use were found this summer under water !!

This big platinum will pay for labor, and all the diamonds will be used in the piece !! Other plain gold bands like the other one in the photo will be used to make the bezel !! This is my last one he made for me from the beautiful dated pillar dollar I found with the same treasure cache I found in feb. Of this year

Absolutely nothing cost me anything except a few hard blows...like any other pirate !! Each piece i have made is better and better, and every piece i mount has enough value to keep me in new machines for some time !! Real treasure from the 1733 fleet being turned into even better treasure !! Heres the first piece !!

From the same hole !! On the same day....twice I've done that with this cache !! Only later have I and others realized the immensity of this cache !!

So fantastic to have these heirloom pieces made for no more than my effort, and pass these precious treasures of the 1733 fleet out to my family....even more satisfying to add to them with precious gems and gold to honor what historical treasures they are !! My queen has chosen and this is how it will be. Can't wait to show you the finished piece....its in santas work shop now !!

That really turned out into a piece of art Bart. Well done on the finds, the thought, getting it done, and the best of all the gift to the Mrs. :headbang::occasion14:

Thank you pepper...it truly is a special piece. So happy to be able to hunt for, find, and create these pieces for my close family !! Next one will be made from an 8 reale bust silver found in the bahamas....I will have it made and bring it back for a special bahamian friend of mine !!

Recycling at it's finest!
Thank you sir....smallfoot I can remeber a time when the thought of actually finding a real treasure coin from a Spanish galleon seemed an impossibility!! I dreamed of finding one and wearing it around my neck like the great treasure hunters before me !! Now I'm on my 4th coin mount !! To use the other gold ring finds to make the piece has brought me even more satisfaction than I ever dreamed !! I have managed to do what so many dream of, and im truly blessed !! Thank you lord for allowing me to live my dreams and be successful at the things I love most in life !! To now be able to pass these treasures out to my family and friends is just the most awsome feeling....sunken spanish treasure is an elite club.....and im so grateful to be a member of the club !!
