Iago compares Desdemona to being a ship full of treasure. She is an object that Othello hs one. Othello does not mind this metaphor. Othello thinks Desdemona is very much a precious object that he has worked hard for and one. In many ways, she is a jewel that he has won in conquest and, although he loves her, is rightfully his.
