Ancient pearl jewelry found in the City of David

I was excited to read about this 2,000 year old gold, emerald and pearl earring found some years ago during an excavation in Jerusalem at the City of David.

I was doubly excited to actually see this earring at a Dead Sea Scroll exhibit at the Discovery Times Square Museum in New York City a few years back.

Then, when I was visiting the excavations at the City of David in Jerusalem, I saw these replicas in the gift shop there for sale.

And in a jewelry store window, also in Jerusalem, but outside the old city, I saw these replicas of the same earring.
