The sterling silver 1 real replica coin featured in these earrings was cast from an actual coin recovered from a 1600s wreck site now believed to be the Buen Jesús y Nuestra Señora del Rosario, one of the vessels sailing with the ill-fated 1622 Tierra Firme treasure fleet. The Rosario along with her sister ships the Nuestra Señora de Atocha and Santa Margarita were lost in a hurricane while passing through the Florida Strait on their return voyage to Spain.
Also referred to as the “Tortugas” shipwreck due to the proximity to the Dry Tortugas Islands, the 1,300 feet-deep site was discovered by the co-founders of Odyssey Marine Exploration. Using ground-breaking technological methods, the recovery made history as the first deep-ocean remotely operated archeological excavation of a shipwreck.
These 1 real replicas are also known as cob coins. Each are cast in .925 sterling silver and wrapped in 14 karat gold with four prongs securing the coin in place. The post and back are also in 14 karat gold making these a beautiful and unique addition to any jewelry collection.
