Handmade in Jerusalem this finely crafted, 3-dimensional, silver pendant is in the form of a pomegranate with two adjoining decorated fields.

On the right is a stylized pomegranate design in yellow gold.
The back is embellished with a combination of hammering and incision techniques.

While the pomegranate is clearly a reference to the seven species and Godâ€™s blessings on Israel, it is not exclusively Jewish, allowing this piece to be worn by just about anyone. In a religious context this piece would make an excellent gift for a bat mitzvah, Hanukkah, etc., or simply as a reminder of oneâ€™s faith. It can also be appreciated in a secular context as a beautiful piece of artisan jewelry made of the finest materials by skilled craftsmen.
