The design for these earrings was inspired by medallions which adorned the Menorah treasure, uncovered near the Southern Wall.
The buried treasure apparently belonged to Jews who traveled to Jerusalem during the late Byzantine period and had to hastily leave for fear of persecution during the time of the Persian conquest.
One of the items found in the buried treasure is an ornament for a Torah scroll, a beautifully crafted gold chain bearing a large medallion depicting the golden Menorah at the front, followed by additional medallions embellished with geometric patterns and flowers – the inspiration for these earrings.
