Tradition holds that King Solomon had his crown designed on the shape of the pomegranate.

And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter. (Kings-1 7:18) 

Note: This unique jewelry is made from pieces of broken Roman glass and no 2 are identical. 

Before the Roman period, glass was made with a sand core mold, and was extremely expensive. But during the Roman period, glass blowing was invented, which changed the entire glass industry. Glass became much more common.

One of the first types of vessels to be made using this new blowing technique is the small elongated bottle that we call the “tear bottle”. The shards used for our jewelry come from these ancient bottles from antiquity.
