The Michael Aram Pomegranate Collection takes its inspiration from one of the most universal and ancient symbols in the world. The fruit has been prized across the globe, across cultures and across time as a representation of life, rebirth, and renewal as well as fertility and union.The pomegranate appears as a symbol of love in the Song of Songs. So important and admired was the fruit that they adorned the robes of the Temple Priests, and King Solomon decorated the columns of the first Temple with pomegranates. The pomegranate is also one of the 7 species called out in the Torah that is indigenous to Israel. It is commonly believed that the pomegranate was the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge- hence a more fitting gift to a Teacher/Educator/Rabbi than an apple!
