(Total Weight 13.5 Grams)
The cut emerald & gold were recovered from the 1757 Cortes Treasure Shipwreck.
This one of a kind ring is named for the large size/style reminiscent of rings worn by 15-18th Century Upper Clergy.
As part of the shipwreck, we recovered a crushed artifact that was likely a ring or pendant, which our jeweler recreated into this fine ring using the style of the original piece, which was likely from the 17th or 18th Century.The emerald was found in cut form on the wreck, the gold setting was created from unmarked gold from the wreck that was melted down and cast, and the diamonds are modern.
Own a piece of history from the 1757 Cortes Shipwreck. Untreated old mine emeralds beautifully set in gold melted down from the shipwreck. This lovely ring comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Of course, a Certificate of Authenticity will be provided detailing that the ring is part of the Cortes Treasure Collection to provide you with the provenance in the event you resell or pass on the ring in the future.
Will sell for cash or will trade for rentable real estate, vessels (dive boat, work boat, yacht), vehicles (newer, low mileage, clean CarFax), RV/Motorhome, aircraft, fine art (no prints please), and perhaps operating businesses or clean public shell corp with 99% delivery. All must be in excellent condition. Functioning businesses located in South Florida may also be considered. No interest in services.
You must own your item free and clear - I will not assume any debt or loans. I have other stones available and can create a custom package to fit your specific trade.
Looking for EVEN trades - no cash in either direction unless you want to trade up. Looking for equitable trades - meaning value to value, not wholesale to retail or vice versa.
Thanks to Johnny Depp and Pirates of the Caribbean, ship wreck treasure is more popular than ever.
This is a great economy in which to be moving into easily portable hard assets, why not do it with one of the rarest stones available?
Again, this is a top gem quality stone, not a rock hound piece.
Regarding Values: Please note that Sotheby's sold a 12-carat emerald in November 2012 for $116,570 per carat, so the asking price is set very reasonably, especially considering the provenance and the fact that emeralds of this size simply cannot be found elsewhere in the market. Per Gemstone Forecaster Magazine, 3.5-4 Color natural emeralds have been rare since the early 1990s.
Again, your asset must be delivered Free and Clear. Real estate should be rentable and in good condition - no fixer uppers or vacant land, please. Aircraft should be in excellent condition with current maintenance and all records. Vessels will need to be delivered to Florida in excellent working condition. No Wooden Vessels, please. Looking for yachts, work boats, and boats that can accommodate scuba diving. Vehicles should have clean title, clean CarFax, and be in excellent condition. New and classics considered. Fine Art also considered, prefer originals. Precious Metals (bullion, coins, etc) also considered. Will also consider 99% deliverable clean public shell.
If you have any questions, please just ask.
