Low-grade gold ring of ornate "hearts" design. 1.7 grams, 3/4" in diameter (size 6). The Nieves site of the 1715 Fleet is known as the "ring wreck" for pieces such as this one, found by the dozens, nearly all small and in low-grade gold and sometimes quite ornate, as is the case here, its thrice-repeated pattern being 2 hearts point-to-point, lightly repaired but otherwise well preserved, more copper in color than gold. With Sinclair photo-certificate #0011. Recovered from: 1715 Fleet, east coast of Florida
