The magic of the past is recreated in jewelry inspired by artifacts from historic shipwrecks.

The magic of the past is recreated in jewelry inspired by artifacts from historic shipwrecks.

Support our project and receive beautiful jewelry at nearly 66% off the retail value!!

You can be a part of this unique maritime history when you receive a distinctive piece of  jewelry uniquely designed and inspired from artifacts recovered from shipwrecks .  And the stories you can tell!  Each piece is identifiable to a particular shipwrecked galleon of Spanish, Portuguese or English origin, such as the Nuestra Senora, the San Lorenza, or the Amity, sunk either by hurricanes or pirates during the 15th, 16th or 17th centuries.

Imagine owning a ring or bracelet inspired by ornate artifacts from a ship found 1,700 feet below the ocean!  Or a necklace inspired by a navigational tool used by sea captains directing their sailing ships. Or a set of earrings inspired by exquisite glassware found on a galleon sunk by a hurricane.

Each piece comes with a numbered certificate that describes the particular artifact that inspired that piece, bringing a shipwreck to life.

 

Some items will even use metal, glass, stone and replicas of coins from the shipwrecks themselves.  Other pieces will highlight natural elements from the sea such as pearls, coral and even “petrified” coal!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Our project is nearly 90% completed. We've invested over $350,000 to bring the project to the point where we are now ready to produce the actual pieces for our project supporters. We have already completed the exhaustive process of designing, mold making, selecting gems and other materials and the production of the final sample pieces. All that remains is your participation to help fund the final production of the pieces.
