Sterling silver 925 earrings with an authentic coin of the widow’s mite in each.
The widow’s mite was a coin originally minted by Alexander Jannaeus (103-76 BC), and was used during Jesus’ time as the small change. This coin is mentioned in Jesus’ parable of the widow’s offering who gave from all she had written in Luke 12.
And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” (Luke 21:1-4)
Comes with a certificate of authenticity for the coins.
