This pair of Lion earrings were hand cut from a coin minted in Israel from 1980 – 1984. The design that Israel used for the coin was of the Lion Of David and also included the Hebrew letters underneath the lion. This is a small coin measuring just 3/4″ in diameter so they work very well for earrings, they are also very light so you almost do not feel them on your ears. After the pieces are cut we plate them in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish to bring out certain ares of the design. The earrings are mounted on 14 karat gold filled ear wires of high quality.
