This beautiful sterling silver necklace is adorned on one side with a replica of the ancient half shekel coin which was given as an annual gift by every Jewish male to the Temple and was used in circulation during the Jewish Great Revolt against Rome (33-70 C.E.). Featured are three pomegranates on a stem, and in ancient Hebrew script the words "Holy Jerusalem." 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.
Makes a wonderful gift for yourself or someone special.
Comes with a lovely sterling silver chain in your choice of length.
