925 Sterling Silver

Height of Ring: 1.6cm / 0.6"

Second Temple (and Jewish war against the Romans)-era silver shekel coins were decorated with three pomegranates on a stem. This iconic image provided the inspiration for this beautiful ring: the gleaming silver pomegranate has a hammered finish, and is flanked by engraved branches.

Pomegranates are mentioned in the Bible as one of the seven species native to the Land of Israel, and they have appeared as a decorative motif since before Temple times. They represent prosperity, joy and wealth.

This ring is available in a range of sizes. It comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Israel Museum, as well as a short explanation of its history in both English and Hebrew.

The Israel Museum, Jerusalem is among the world's most highly rated encyclopedic museums. It holds the biggest collection of ancient Israel and Bible Lands antiquities on the planet, and is home to groundbreaking archaeological discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The museum creates replicas and adaptations of Jewish and Israeli artifacts from around the world; these unusual pieces make unique and wonderful gifts.
