Found on the shores of Colombia Spanish galleon “San Jose” was carrying treasures intended for the Spanish king Philip V over 300 years ago.

Experts think that the gold and silver coins, as well as emeralds and a lot of jewelry can be found on board. The ship sank in 1708 in the Caribbean Sea near the city of Cartagena after the unsuccessful battle with the warships of the British fleet. Since then the discovery of this ship had been an inaccessible dream for the treasure hunters. It would be interesting to create unique cufflinks "King of Spain Philip V", dedicated to this event created in the single copy, where the a pair of emeralds or other precious stones, raised from the galleon would serve as the basis for them.

As is well known, for the first mention of cufflinks in the world we are obliged to the King of France Louis XIV de Bourbon, who was the grandfather to Philippe V. Maybe the part of the jewelry was intended for him as a lover of various precious adornments.

Such cufflinks could take a worthy place in the cuffs of modern suit of King of Spain Philippe VI, become one of the objects of the treasury of Spanish kings and be passed on from generation to generation, especially if they show the emblem of Spain.
