Coin Earrings with a Garnet

The Ophel excavations shed light on an ancient treasure, apparently left behind by Jewish pilgrims who came to Jerusalem at the end of the Byzantine period – and left quickly for fear of persecution during the time of the Persian conquest. The treasure included a large medallion decorated with the symbols of the gold Menorah, a shofar and a Torah scroll, which served as an ornament for a Torah scroll. The medallion was hung on a hand crafted golden chain which was further embellished with smaller medallions – inspiring these earrings, made of gold and dangling garnet stones.
