An enchanting Magen David Roman glass pendant, in 14K gold, Israel, circa 1970s-1980s.
This charming piece has been expertly crafted out of 14 karat yellow gold and set, with a fragment of ancient Roman glass. Roman glass is famous for its beautiful iridescence (the rainbow-like effect that changes according to the angle from which glass is viewed).
It is in excellent vintage condition showing only general signs of wear. It weighs approximately 3.36 grams and measures 1.02 inches (2.6 cm) by 0.79 inches (2 cm). It is unmarked but tested positive for 14Kt gold.
The Star of David is known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David (מָגֵן דָּוִד).
