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.

I love this pendant. It is not only a beautifully unique piece of jewelry, but it is so meaningful as well. I have always loved the story of the widow whom Jesus commended for her generous heart. And now that I am a widow, it is a reminder to follow her example.

I wanted to give something meaningful to a young friend who is turning 18. The video devotion on your web-site caught my attention. This was exactly what I wanted to bless my friend with. In God's hands, when we give out of love, He can do beautiful things. I was very impressed with the beauty of this piece when I got the package. It felt like quality in my hand. It wasn't too big or too small for an average person. I chose the default chain because of the way the charm hung a little higher on the curve of it. I almost chose a chain that looked fancier to me but I'm glad I picked the default chain that looks a bit like a silver wire but moves like a chain. When I showed the gift to another friend who wanted to give her mom something to encourage her, that friend turned around and ordered one too. When my young birthday friend opened the present, she lit up with joy and put it on immediately. I just knew then that it was the right present and would be cherished for a long time. Thank you for the beautiful pendent and including the video on your website.QualityRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5ValueRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
