Hand-cast bronze between 100-60 BC, the story of the Widow’s Mite originated in the Bible. Jesus, seeing a poor widow place her only two copper coins in the treasury, declared that her small gift outweighed all others for she had given all she owned in faith and love. The classic bezel is specially designed for this elegant pendant to encircle the widow's mite coin. The back of the pendant displays the words of Jesus engraved on the back. He said, Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on. Luke 21:3-4. Pendant includes an antiqued gold tone 18 inch cable chain with a 3 inch extender and a lobster claw clasp. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
