More About this Item


Description: Artifact #: 29570. Shipwreck: Atocha 1622. Recovered in 1994. Ring Size: 5.5, Emerald: 2.5 Carats
Provenance: This elegant and delicate ring speaks for itself. A truly unique solitaire design recovered from the site of the shipwrecked Nuestra SeÎ_ora de Atocha in 1994. The ring size is 5.5. The emerald is a brilliant green with a slight chip and weighs approximately 2.5 carats. The gemstone originated from Colombia's famed Muzo mine, which is known for its bounty and constant production of the highest-quality emeralds on the world market. It is set in a high-karat gold ring which was typical of the wealthier class during the early 17th century. This beautiful artifact is the property of Taffi Fisher, Mel's only daughter and youngest child.
