Articles of jewelry found in the Holy land, in several hoards and finds, dating from c. 1000 BC until the conquest of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar in 587 BC, before the styles were influenced by the Achaemenian, Phoenician, and Cypriote styles. The articles are of little artistic quality, consisting mainly of beads, simple earrings, and plaques, except for some unusual seals and amulets.
