A treasure trove of jewelry was recently rescued from a famed Spanish shipwreck that has been lying on the ocean floor off the Bahamas for more than 360 years.

The jewels and related finds have been on display since Aug. 8 at the Bahamas Maritime Museum in Freeport, Grand Bahamas. Click here to read full article. https://www.jckonline.com/editorial-article/jewels-spanish-shipwreck-display/
