Ancient gold ring excavated in Jerusalem

MORE ANCIENT BLING: Ancient gold ring, 2,300 years old, discovered in City of David. “This is an unusual and deeply moving find, not one found every day,” the IAA stated in their announcement (Judy Siegel-Itzkovich, Jerusalem Post).
Archaeologists in Jerusalem’s City of David were recently amazed and moved to uncover a rare small gold ring set with a precious stone – apparently made for and worn by a little boy or girl who lived there during the Hellenistic period some 2,300 years ago.


Or possibly by a woman wearing it on her pinkie.

Another important find from the Givati parking lot excavation.
