This high polished beaded edge 14K yellow gold setting beautifully showcases a GENUINE ancient widow's mite of the finest quality and makes for a unique and rich presentation of authentic Biblical history.

Christian jewelry varies widely in design and style but nothing is more profound than Christian jewelry featuring GENUINE artifacts (ancient coins) from the time of Christ and the early days of Christianity.  One of the most popular ancient Biblical coins has its roots in New Testament history.  It is the wonderful story that surrounds the "widow's mite" coin.  The widow's mite was the lowest denomination coin circulating during the time of Christ, the small bronze prutahs issued by Alexander Jannaeus.  These coins feature various designs including anchors, stars, cornucopias, lily flowers and a palm branch.

In describing an incident that involved Jesus, the disciple Mark wrote, "He sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the treasury, and many of the rich put in a great amount.  A poor widow came and put in two small coins, the equivalent of a penny.  Then he called his disciples and said to them, 'In truth I tell you, this poor widow has put more in than all who have contributed to the treasury for they have put in money then could spare but she, in her poverty, has put in everything she possessed, all she had to live on.'"

Special note:  This is a CATEGORY and while the mountings will all look exactly as pictured above, the widows mite coins will vary in appearance but all will be premium grade, hand-selected examples, not the poor commercial quality types usually used by others.
