Jerusalem Adventure Reveals Sultan's Treasure
Large Hunks of Gem in a Cushion Cut
In the Old City of Jerusalem, you’ll be amazed what you can find. After all, it’s a place packed with holy sites for the three big Abrahamic religions.
Seemingly suspended in time, the Old City’s cobblestone streets are filled with the smells of spices, as well as street vendors selling everything from sandals to ceramics. The people watching is incredible, from the tourists visiting from around the globe to the cloaked Armenians walking to church, slamming the ground with their staffs in unison.
The Old City is also home to some of the world’s finest antiquity merchants, which was the reason for my most recent visit. Uri is my guy in Jerusalem, and when I entered his store, he quickly whisked me to his backroom and showed me an incredible pendant he’d recently come across.
The pendant featured a stunningly large cushion-cut amethyst bounded by mother-of-pearl and sparkling white stones. The pendant had once belonged to a sultan who had traded them for some islands in the Red Sea.
This piece has inspired the Sultan’s Special Amethyst and Mother-of-Pearl Pendant. This jewelry carries all the enchanting mystique of the Levant. This pendant shows off the exceptional color of these stones surrounded by yellow gold-finished .925 sterling silver.
From the sultan’s collection to yours, see why these stones are the toast of the Middle East. — Jack B.
