Description

These beautiful earrings are part of a beautiful sterling silver collection designed by Janette Al-Ama a Palestinian cancer survivor. Her handcrafted jewelry draws on Scripture as well as the history and biodiversity of the Holy Land. Also check out the pendant section for the matching Pomegranate pendant.

The Bible only mentions pomegranates in the Old Testament. The hems of Jewish priestly vestments are decorated with a stylised form of this fruit (Exodus 28:33 and 39:24-26). As such, a pomegranate is a metaphor for the richness of the promised land of Israel (Deuteronomy. 8:8); in the Song of Solomon, Sulamith’s cheeks are compared to halves of a pomegranate

In Christian symbolism the numerous seeds in this fruit represent the Church, unity in faith and a community of believers.

Pomegranates play an important role as a symbol of righteousness in Judaism, as they supposedly contain 613 seeds, which correspond to the 613 commandments of the Torah. Thus, at Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), Jews eat this fruit one seed at a time, for as many wishes as possible to be fulfilled.
