These rare earrings features a stunning silver replica of the ancient half shekel coin which was used in circulation during the Jewish Great Revolt against Rome (33-70 C.E.). Featured on one side are three pomegranates on a stem and surrounded by the words "Holy Jerusalem" in ancient Hebrew script. The other side bears a chalice and the words "Half Shekel" with the Hebrew letter "Aleph" marking the first year of the rebellion.
The coin was discovered at the Temple Mount Sifting Operation at Emek Tzurim on the Mount of Olives and dates to the years 66/67 CE.
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
