Ancient Jewely Find Gives a New Meaning to Vintage Jewelry!

A rare find of ancient jewelry, dating back 3000 years, has been discovered in Israel. Concealed in a jar, the trove had a ring, earrings and beads. It's amazing to see the construction and detail that ancient craftsmen were able to execute so long ago. What an exciting find!

Israeli archaeologists have unearthed a stash of rare ancient jewelry near the site of the biblical Armageddon in the north of the country. Israel Finkelstein of Tel Aviv University, who co-directed the dig, said this week that the find offers a rare glimpse into ancient Canaanite high society. The 3,000-year-old jewelry was found inside a ceramic vessel, suggesting the owner hid them before fleeing, he said. (AP Photo/Dan Balilty) Ibex Detailed Earring (AP Photo-Dan Balilty)
