About Our Cobs
What Are Cobs?
Cobs are made from historic Shipwrecked coins found off the coast of Cornwall, shaped and moulded by the sea and sand for hundreds of years. Here in our Falmouth workshop, we produce mounts from Sterling Silver, White and Yellow Gold in 9 and 18ct to fit around the coins in a way that compliments their natural sea-moulded shape.
We are able to construct jewellery items from Pendants to Rings and Cufflinks. As well as the choice from three different Mount styles, you can choose to add any specific Gemstone or Diamond to your piece, or even contact us with any commission ideas you may have to incorporate these coins! Price on application.

A Few Of Our Past Commissions:
The HMS Association
The HMS Association, was a 90-gun ship of the line and flagship of Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovel, who served during the war of the Spanish Succession.
The HMS Association sank in 1707, on her return from the Mediterranean following the Toulon campaign, due to a miscalculation of their position. She struck the outer Gilstone Rock off the Isles of Scilly and was lost in minutes.

The Hollandia was a ship of the Dutch East India Company . The Hollandia became separated from the fleet and struck Gunner Rock near Annet, Isles of Scilly on the 13th of July 1743 in the early hours of the morning, sinking nearby with the loss of all hands
The Rill Cove Wreck
The fabled ‘Lizard Silver Wreck’ at Rill Cove, was an unknown vessel which sank around 1616, leaving its treasure to linger beside Kynance Cove until 1973 when it was re-discovered by divers. ‘Cobs’ represent some of the first coins minted in the Spanish New World, from Mexico, Peru, Columbia and Bolivia, and were accepted as reliable Silver currency worldwide.
