    Good to see it washing up somewhere that it's needed.
    They're living a hard life there at the moment, to say the least.

    Initial guess was these jewellery pieces are from a Spanish Treasure Galleon wreck, about the right place for lighter items to wash up.
    Nope, the providence of the jewelry is mid-20th century.

    Damn...200-300 year old pirate treasure would have been much more exciting.

    How does gold 'wash up' on a beach? Does gold float now?

    I'm leaning to that it was planted by the government to calm protest. So sad what has happened in Venezuela. It was such a nice place.

    More likely the beach "washed down" to the gold.
