The necklace was designed by a local artist, inspired by the “pearl earring” from the Roman period which was found inside a collapsed Byzantine home.
The house once belonged to Queen Helene who moved to Jerusalem from Adiabene after converting to Judaism in order to be with the Jewish people and bring sacrifices in the Temple. She is noted for generosity in helping out the Jews in Jerusalem during the Great Revolt against the Romans.
