Ancient Shekel

In 66 CE, the Jews rebelled against Roman rule and began to mint their own coins, called shekels, as a sign of their independence. The imagery and inscriptions are entirely Jewish in nature: a chalice with an ancient Hebrew inscription denoting the date and denomination; and a branch with pomegranates, one of the Seven Species of Israel, surrounded by the inscription, 'Holy Jerusalem'.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.
