This 925 silver necklace is a replica of the silver parchment upon which oldest inscription from the Bible was ever discovered: The Priestly Blessing. The charm is 1.6 in (4cm) long and 1cm wide.

Made in Israel. City of David jewelry.

The Priestly Blessing:
A small silver parchment inscribed with the priestly blessing was discovered rolled up in such a way that a string could be threaded through and the scroll could be worn on the body as a necklace or ornament. Two such scrolls were discovered at the Ketef Hinnom burial caves during the excavations that took place there in the 1970s. They are dated to 700 BCE at the end of the First Temple Period. These verses are the earliest examples we have of written biblical texts. (Numbers 6:24-26)
