Gold Pendant in the Shape of a Mahta Featuring an Emerald - FJ.3846
Price: $4600.00
This genuine Siberian emerald weighs 23 carats and has been set in a mahta-shaped gold pendant adorned with 4 genuine Burmese rubies. Centuries ago, in the temples and synagogues of the holy land, the fragrant smoke of incense filled the air. This blend of rare spices and gums was though to please the deity and the to purify the air of the sanctuary. A costly sacrifice, incense was considered the worthy gift of princes and kings. The mahta, or incense shovel, was employed in the ritual of incense burning and was also used to remove the ashes afterwards. This golden mahta echoes forms from the classical world. Instead of perfumed incense, it holds the cool fire of a rare cabochon emerald. A contemporary variation on an ancient theme, it is certain to make whoever wears it today feel like royalty. - (FJ.3846)Origin: Russia and Myanmar Collection: Jewelry Style: Gem Stone Pendants Medium: Emerald and Rubies
