Around the same time this posy ring was made, English-born pirate captain “Calico Jack” Rackham (captured around October 31) is brought to trial in Jamaica; he is hanged at Port Royal two days later. Most of his crew is also hanged but female pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny (his Irish-born wife) are spared. The band FEELS like pirate treasure - it’s nice and heavy, in 22k gold.
