Queen Helene 9K Gold Dangle Necklace

Description

The pendant is made from 9K gold and is set with freshwater pearls and agate stones. The pearl pendant’s design is reminiscent of the pearl earring uncovered in excavations in the City of David. It was hidden for 2,000 years inside a building from the Byzantine period which is attributed to the family of Queen Helene of Adiabene. The building may have even belonged to Queen Helene herself, as it was built in the first century CE, the same time in which she lived in Jerusalem and was active in Jewish life.

The Inspiration

Inspired by the Gold Earring
Gold Earring

A gold earring set with pearls and precious stones was discovered in the Ancient Tyropoeon Valley excavation at the Givati Parking Lot by the entrance to the City of David. Because of the value and quality of the earring, it is assumed that it belonged to woman of prominent stature from Jerusalem's Roman Period, 2000 years ago. Since it was discovered in a later layer of the excavation, it is thought to have passed by inheritance from generation to generation.
