WIDOW'S MITE DETAILS

This genuine mite has been cleaned and restored after excavation. 

Widow's Mite - Jewish Bronze Coin

From archeological excavations, we know that the vast majority of bronze coins circulating in Jerusalem in the lifetime of Jesus were the Jewish leptons of prutot, minted from the time of the Maccabean kings, until Pontius Pilate.

Any small, Jewish, bronze coin struck before the crucifixion can be legitimately called a “widow’s mite.”

*Due to the ancient origins of excavated mites, pieces will vary in look, texture, shape, size, and details. The mites are treated with the utmost care to preserve the natural look. There are no guarantees any designs will be strongly visible due to the limited equipment the Romans had access to over 2,000 years ago, and being buried for that amount of time.

2000-YEAR-OLD GLASS REBORN

The ancient excavated glass shards used in this unique jewelry collection began life as a household vase, water jug, or temple vessel.

EXPLORE THE ROMAN GLASS COLLECTION

2000-YEAR-OLD EXCAVATED GLASS

The Romans established ancient glass-making centers in and around Jerusalem because of the abundance of resources (sand) and skilled labor.

The excavated glass pieces used in this unique jewelry collection began life as a household vase, water jug, or temple vessel.

The items belonged to real, living, breathing human beings - who lived their lives in and around Jerusalem 2000 years ago at the time of Jesus Christ and the reign of the Roman Empire.

REBORN AS GORGEOUS JEWELRY

Rarely, unbroken vases, jugs, plates and temple vessels are excavated and displayed in museums or auctioned to antiquities collectors.

More commonly, though, the glass is discovered in broken shards. Instead of being discarded as useless, we take the broken fragments and they are carefully cataloged, meticulously cleaned, and reborn as meaningful and unique jewelry.

Ancient coins (mites) are also unearthed and given new life as "widow's mite" pieces in our collection.

*Certificate of Authenticity included

Roman Glass speaks to my heart. It's a reminder to me that at some point we all need to be cleaned off, reborn, and reminded of our value.

The history of Roman Glass is my favorite thing about the jewelry. Every time I wear it someone asks because it's so unique and I gush about the history!

widows mite pendant

This is a gorgeous pendant. I bought the polished pendant with the chain. I'm glad I paid a little more and purchased the polished piece. This would make a meaningful gift to someone special for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or just because!! I have purchased chains from this company. They sell quality products. I never hesitate to buy from them.

Excellent quality

This necklace was more than I anticipated. I r had my eyes in this for quite some time. The intricate detail is amazing and the quality is superb!! This beautiful piece hangs perfectly from one the sturdiest chains I have ever purchased. It lies flat against your skin so there’s no twisting of the pendant. If you’re looking for great quality at an affordable price, look no further.

Widows mite

I love this necklace! I was raised in a Jewish home and found Christ as I grew older. When I had children of my own I taught Sunday school. The stories were all new to me, and I had very little money, so when I read the story of the widow's mite, I broke down and cried. This pendant has special meaning to me, may I always be grateful for all that I have and remember who I am before the Lord.
