The Rimon Necklace is a blue and green Roman Glass ensconced in a beautiful sterling silver pomegranate.

Roman Glass was discovered during archaeological digs in Israel and date back to the Roman era, nearly 2,000 years ago. Thanks to the perfect balance of geological and climatic conditions, Israel is one of the few places in the world that was able to form and preserve the amazing colorful glass.

In the Bible

A land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey.
--DEUTERONOMY 8:8

Israel is most commonly known as the "Land flowing with milk and honey", but there are actually seven species of fruits and grains listed in the Bible that are special to Israel. The pomegranate, which is one of the seven is often used by the Rabbis as symbol of righteousness. Just as it is filled with an abundance of seeds, so too the Jewish people should be filled with an abundance of good deeds.

      In Israel for the first time in 2013. Was fortunate to be able to walk through the orchards, drink pomegranate juice in the mornings, and gaze upon Israel’s beauty. I will never be the same person again as before I visited.
