This beautiful gold plated necklace is adorned with pyrite and grey pearls. The pendant’s design comes from an ancient earring that was uncovered during excavations in the City of David area. The earring was found inside a structure from the Byzantine era but experts believe that is was crafted 300 years earlier during Roman rule (Second Temple period) and was a family heirloom.
The piece is part of the Queen Helene jewelry collection, which integrates colored gemstones into the original design of the jewelry worn by the aristocracy of the Second Temple period.
The City of David collection is a unique and exquisite line of artwork based on the actual discoveries made in the City of David's famous archaeological excavations, which are uncovering the history and culture of Jerusalem dating back thousands of years. Each piece comes with its own story of the archaeological find that inspired the design, and which enables you to connect the rich past of ancient Jerusalem with the present day beauty of these original works of art.
