Menorah Medallion Necklace
- 22K gold plated silver necklace.
- Length 16.5"/ 42cm
The pendant on this necklace was designed to resemble the medallion found in the Ophel excavations, used as an ornament for a Torah scroll.
The medallion is embossed with images of the golden Menorah, the most symbolic, ancient and widespread Jewish motif, with a shofar and a Torah scroll on either side – also prominent Jewish symbols, usually found in mosaics located in ancient synagogues. The original pendant dates back to the Byzantine period – approximately 1,400 years ago.
