This necklace is so fabulous - you have never seen anything like it!  A large sterling silver octagon resembling a stone structure surrounds a large piece of iridescent genuine ancient Roman glass.  Sheer elegance!

The piece is inspired by the markets of Jerusalem in the northern Tyropoeon Valley.  The model of ancient Jerusalem on the grounds of the Israel Museum enables the visitor to study the city of Jerusalem, its topography and architecture, and to visualize life in the city at the time of the Second Temple, before the Jewish revolt against Rome and the destruction of the city in 70 C.E.

The shard of genuine ancient Roman glass in this piece originate form fragments of glass vessels discovered in Israel, in the vicinity of the Mediterranean Sea shore.  The finely wrought glass bottles and jars, dated 1st - 6th century C.E., were created in ancient Israel by craftsmen working with a blow-pipe at the glass furnace.  Over the centuries these glass vessels gained additional charm from the iridescent coloring caused by the weathering of the glass.

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a small description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
