These unique earrings are modeled after an ornament that was found in archaeological excavations. The finding was an ancient ornament wrought in the shape of a harp. The harp is synonymous with King David, who was known in the Bible as a harpist as well as a shepherd and a musician to kings, before he himself was appointed by God through the prophet Samuel. The harp has become an iconic symbol of the House of David and is the City of David’s project logo. David composed psalms and may have sung them on his harp. Commentators hypothesize that he used the harp as an alarm clock as well. The harp was an instrument that opened the gates to serenity and holiness. Through the ages, it still reminds the world of David and his beautiful songs.
