A unique handcrafted wheat pendant brooch, in 21Kt gold and set with an ancient bronze Prutah, Jerusalem, Israel, circa 1960s-1970s.

This stunning piece of archaeological jewelry has been crafted out of 21K yellow gold in the form of wheat, inspired by the ancient coin at its center. The detailed bronze Prutah dates from the reign of Agrippa I, grandson of Herod The Great, Judea circa 37-44 CE. The obverse is of the Royal Canopy and the reverse shows three ears of wheat. The detail and natural form created is truly superb. This pendant was handmade by Yechezkial the Silversmith, as he was affectionately known in Jerusalem, who sold items from his store Cardo Charm in the Jewish quarter of the Old City. Yechezkial was a fourth-generation silversmith and goldsmith from Iran who came to Israel and continued his family trade using their traditional methods. His gold pieces are fairly rare as he mostly worked in silver.

The pin is in superb original condition, having been part of the family's private collection. It stands, approximately, 2 inches (5.06 cm) tall by 1.57 inches (4 cm) wide, with the coin having 0.75 inches (1.91 cm) diameter, and weighs 14.25 grams. It is not hallmarked but acid tested just shy of 22K, which fits with Yechezkial's favored choice of 21K gold.
