Ancient pearl jewelry at Rockefeller Museum Jerusalem
I wanted to tell you about and show you some authentic examples of ancient pearl jewelry, so here goes!
Jerusalem is an fascinating city to "poke around".
On my last visit there I visited the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum, just outside the old city near Herod's gate.
It's a fascinating place and I enjoyed trying to photograph some ancient pearl jewelry there.
Even if some of the photos didn't turn out well, I was able to capture some of the beauty of these ancient pieces of pearl jewelry.
I really like ancient pearl earrings. I love the fact that, more often than not, the natural pearls are irregular.
