"And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites..." - Mark 12:42

This beloved Biblical story becomes real with the gift of a genuine restored mite that existed 2000 years ago in ancient Israel. 

Perfect for the woman in your life who "giveth all she hath"

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

Roma Designer Jewelry

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.

Roma Designer Jewelry

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.

    Truly authentic

    I can tell this coin is authentic to the Roman time period. Being around 2000 years old, I wouldn’t expect it to be preserved perfectly, and to me, that is the beauty of the coin and it really adds to the story of the widow’s mite.

    I was disappointed, my coin didn't have much of an imprint on it. Thought it would look like the picture.

    Beautiful gift for my wife

    I’m giving it to my wife for her birthday in 6 days. We were scheduled to visit Israel with our church group, but due to the unfortunate circumstances we had to cancel. This is one of the items she was wanting to bring home with her.
