Pair of Queen Helene earrings. Made from 22K gold plated 925 sterling silver, with pearls and agate gemstones. this design was inspired by a gold earring inlaid with pearls and emeralds that was discovered in the Ancient Tyropoeon Valley excavation at the Givati Parking Lot by the entrance to the City of David. Its quality raises the hypothesis that it belonged to a woman of high social status in the Roman period, about two thousand years ago, since it is in a later excavation layer it can be assumed that it was inherited from generation to generation. We followed the original design lines to preserve the majesty that the earring imparts.
Love the earrings - comfortable to wear and a piece of history from Jerusalem. They came packaged with love, gorgeous gift wrapping and even some postcards. Made me feel that someone cared.
