This item is beautifully crafted. The 14K bezel protects the softer 22K gold coin within. The coin is very clean and I like wearing the 290 year old Jerusalem Cross design. I was lucky that it was in the advertized size #10 that is a perfect fit.
The coin is authentic but it is not stated that this coin is actually from a shipwreck salvage. This is a high quality product none the less.

Thank you for you comments and its great that you are happy with your beautiful Portuguese Reis ring! Yes, all of our pieces are guaranteed authentic. Some coins were found on land including this Portuguese Reis, which was used as a gold trade coin in the early 1700's. All of the coins we offer from shipwrecks are stated as shipwreck salvaged pieces on the item page and the certificate of authenticity which details the history of each particular shipwreck. Customers are encouraged to contact us if they have any questions in regards to the history of any piece.
I have a lot of traditional jewelry but whenever I want to add to my collection I now search for unique pieces that are hand-crafted and different from the typical pieces that are readily available. I wanted to buy a pendant crafted from shipwreck coins in 14K gold. After searching many websites I settled on" Lost Galleon." I looked over the unique selections available then called and spoke with Dan in an effort to get some specific information about some of the pendants I had chosen and his personal opinion. He was very knowlegable and with his help I made my final choice. I was EXTREMELY pleased when my pendant arrived in a very timely fashion. It was even more beautiful in person than on the website. The gold surround and the loop were a nice heavy weight appropriate for the size coin. The accompanying paperwork was very interesting as well as giving me a real sense of the coin's authenticity. I would highly recommend "Lost Galleon" to any prospective buyers.
The Cruader coin pendant arrived ,and it was perfect.Just as described and photoed. Made a great 30 yr anniversary pressie for my husband. I will buy the matching cufflinks next visit.
Excellent customer service. An absolute pleasure to deal with. Quality & workmanship is unmatched. Excellent product!! Thanks again
So happy with my Roma pendant it looks even better in real life. Superb craftmanship and friendly helpful service. Something I will TREASURE always. A totally pleasant experience dealing with Lost Galleon - excellent customer service. Very fast delivery all the way to Australia.
The coin we received was absolutely wonderful! My Wife has not taken it off yet! ( 8 day's ).You have a very nice web site.I was very comfortable in shopping there as i am not very computer savvy.With the previous reviews being all with high regards i was confident with my purchase and you sure did not let me down. I will sure be shopping with you folks again!
Click, Click, Click and it was done. No problems, no lines, and no sales person with no sales expierence. I enjoy'd everything about this transaction and the items on display.
the caribbean pottery items I ordered were outstanding. The only problem I had, was the size of the loop on the pendant the necklace goes through. I had to crush the necklace end to get it through the loop.
