Oh, if this coin could tell a story...

This is a genuine Bar Kochba coin- very rare- And what a story it tells.

This revolt was a rebellion of the Jews of the Judea province, led by Shimon Bar Kochba against the Roman empire. It was fought circa 132–136 CE.

The revolt erupted as a result of religious and political tensions in Judea province. Shimon bar Kokhva, the commander, was regarded by many Jews as the Messiah, a heroic figure who would restore Israel. Initial rebel victories established an independent state of Israel over parts of Judea for over two years, but a Roman army made up of six full legions with auxiliaries and elements from up to six additional legions finally crushed it.

The Bar Kokhba revolt resulted in an extensive depopulation of Judean Jewish communities, more so than the Great Revolt of Judea of 70 CE. Despite easing persecution of Jews following Hadrian's death in 138 CE, the Romans barred Jews from Jerusalem, except for attendance in Tisha B'Av. The Jewish community of Judea was devastated in events some scholars describe as a genocide.


This particular coin is called a "zuz". it is silver, and was over struck on an uncertain Roman Imperial denarius.
It is Undated, but attributed to year 3 (134/5 CE)

I have set at the front the fluted amphora with handle and it says"For the Freedom of Jerusalem," with a palm frond next to it.

On the back is a bunch of Grape and is says "Shimon" the leader of the revolt.

These coins are very rare and sought after, and very valuable. they increase in value and are considered a very good investment- I have kept the coin in is current state- no polishing, to preserve the value of this amazing coin.

It is set in a solid 18 kt gold frame and bale- nice and heavy, and in the base of the bale is a 3 mm VS clarity diamond- the look is classic and timeless-
On the model it is shown on a strand of black diamonds- also an option, and message me if this interests you.

This is such an amazing piece of history, as well as a stunning and graceful coin

We have had a rough time after losing our English Mastiff, Magnus, before Christmas. I was looking at your jewelry, as I always do, and I told my husband this necklace reminded me of Magnus. I checked the listing this past weekend with my sister and it had sold. I broke down and cried. I had no clue it was my husband who bought it. I know I’ve told you that your jewelry brings joy, Mara. But it can also bring peace, strength and a powerful reminder of wonderful memories of loved ones. This pendant symbolizes our Magnus. He is our 3rd dog represented by the 3 golden suns. 6 pointed star, his age. The large M. The coloring of the coin reminds us of his brindle coat. The size is large and powerful, just like he will always be in our hearts. Thank you for my keepsake, Mara. It truly is beyond beautiful. All my best, Aaryn

Absolutely beautiful necklace. The pendant is substantial, and the combination (with emeralds) is striking.

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful pendant! The detail on this ancient coin is really incredible, and Mara's setting really shows it off, without being too fussy or refined. I haven't taken it off since it arrived! I also definitely recommend getting the DHL shipping upgrade. It's a secure feeling to track the piece all the way to your door.
