These wonderful earrings are beautiful and historic at the same time!  They are guaranteed to prompt questions and admiring glances! 

They are based on a sundial found at Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. The original sundial is etched with gradations around a hole, which most likely held a vertical post. The post cast a shadow, dividing the hours of the day and night according to the seasons. 

The shards of glass inlaid in this piece originate from fragments of glass vessels discovered in Israel, in the vicinity of the Mediterranean Sea shore. 

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.
