Exodus 28:3334 directed that images of pomegranates be woven onto the hem of the me'il ("robe of the ephod"), a robe worn by the hebrew high priest. Kings 7:1322 describes pomegranates depicted on the capitals of the two pillars (jachin and boaz) which stood in front of the temple king solomon built in jerusalem. It is said that solomon designed his coronet based on the pomegranate's "crown" (calyx). Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the torah.
Some jewish scholars believe that it was the pomegranate that was the forbidden fruit of the garden of eden. This item is made of sterling silver and corals. The style is mediterranean and historical.
