8. This Pendant

caravel

Made in the late 16th century, is a nacreous baroque pearl which forms the hull of the caravel. All other parts of the caravel, including the two masts, the bow and stern of the ship, except for the sail, are made up of gold. The sail is made up of white enamel. The upper end of the hull, closer to the deck, is decorated with a row of five almost rectangular-shaped precious stones, which appear to be emeralds and rubies alternating with one another.
