8 Reale Certified “Genuine” by NGC. 6 Tentacle Octopus w/ Diamonds, Green Emerald eyes. 14kt Gold

$2,999.00

This 14 kt Gold Pendant is conquered by a mounted 6 Tentacle Octopus that gleams and sparkles along with Melee Diamonds. The head of the Octopus proves a watchful eye with 2 small Emeralds eyes. The bezel holds 3 – 2.70 mm Diamonds that are well placed for the classy look.

The mounted coin has seen many miles. First, the Silver used to mint the coin was probably taken from a South American Incan or Aztec warrior and melted into a Silver small disc. Then, struck into an 8 Reale coin. From there, the coin traveled back to the Old World, Spain. Once back in Spain, it was again loaded into chests chartered with a course for Asia.   This Silver coin is an NGC Graded 8 Reale and is from the Spice Islands Shipwreck c. 1630 (NGC # 6065270-077). The Spice Islands wreck is a mystery whether it was actually a plate ship or merchant vessel is unclear. What is known is that when the ship became stuck and too damaged to continue on her voyage; the crew made the decision to light the ship on fire and scuttle her contents. The Spice Islands are a small group of islands NE of Indonesia. An unknown ship is presumed to have sunk circa 1630 leaving behind several chests of 8 Reales minted in Mexico City and Potosi during the reign of King Philip IV of Spain.

This is the actual Pendant you will receive.
