Ir David - City of David Jewelry

The story of the City of David began over three thousand years ago when King David established Jerusalem as the unified capitol of all the twelve tribes of Israel. Years later his son KIng Solomon built the First Temple on Mount Moriah. Today, this area reveals some of the most exciting archeological finds of ancient Israel. The items of jewelry featured here are modern day replicas of ancient artifacts found on site underneath modern day City of David. The stunning Shiloah necklace was inspired by an ancient text engraved in stone and describes the excitement of two groups of quarriers who connected the tunnel they were digging from opposite ends. This complex feat of engineering was completed for king Hezekiah at the end of the 8th century BCE. Another recurring motif is the Pure for God one which is snspired by a tiny seal made of clay which had been inscribed with the Aramaic words deka leyah meaning pure for God. This jewelry is moving and evocative, taking us back in time to an ancient and timeless world in Jerusalem.
