Ophir Gallery Jerusalem
Ophir was founded in 1956 by Shula and Avraham Lor on the Jaffa Road in the center of Jerusalem. The store's name derives from the biblical city which supplied many of King Solomon's treasures. Indeed when you walk into the small, narrow gallery, it feels more like entering Aladdin's magical cave. More likely than not you will be greeted by Sefi, son of Avraham and a third-generation jeweler who is proud to show you the family's new creations and antique collections.
For Fig Tree & Vine, the Lors have created a stunning line of pendants and cufflinks made from certified ancient Jewish coins -- for extraordinary gifts and wearable Jewish history.
