Embrace the echoes of antiquity with our "Ancient Tribute" Tyre Shekel in Sterling Silver Pendant. This remarkable piece features an authentic Tyre Shekel coin delicately encased in lustrous sterling silver. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this pendant serves as a tangible connection to the trade and prosperity of the ancient city of Tyre. The Tyre Shekel, renowned for its purity and value, was once a symbol of commerce and power in the Mediterranean world. Suspended from a sterling silver chain, this pendant becomes not only a striking adornment but also a cherished relic of bygone eras, inviting you to carry a piece of history with you wherever you go.


In the ancient city of Tyre, nestled along the shores of the Mediterranean, the Tyrian shekel emerged as a symbol of prosperity and commerce. Minted from precious silver, these coins bore the mark of Tyre's renowned craftsmanship and maritime prowess.

But the story of Tyre extends beyond commerce. It is intertwined with pivotal moments in biblical narratives. According to the Gospel of Matthew, Judas Iscariot famously betrayed Jesus to the chief priests and elders for thirty pieces of silver.

Yet, amidst the shadows of betrayal, Tyre also becomes a beacon of divine provision and faith. In the same Gospel, Jesus instructs Peter to catch a fish and find a shekel in its mouth to pay the temple tax for both of them.

Peter, faithful yet skeptical, casts his line into the sea and retrieves a fish bearing a Tyre shekel in its mouth. This miraculous provision affirms Peter's faith and demonstrates Jesus' divine authority.

Today, the "Golden Heritage" Tyre Shekel in 14K Gold Pendant serves as a reminder of the complexities of human nature and the enduring lessons of history. As you wear this pendant, may you be encouraged to seek wisdom and discernment, and may you carry with you the timeless heritage of Tyre's prosperity and biblical significance, reflecting on the choices that shape our lives and the world around us.
