Dead-Sea Capsules with Love

Each of these pure salt crystals was found whole, as is, at the lowest point on earth: The Dead Sea, 400m below sea level. The crystal wasn’t shaped nor processed; its architecture was fully designed by nature. It is unique in its shape and there is no other exactly like it.

The crystal enfolds within all the special virtues and minerals of The Dead Sea, known for their healing and rejuvenating properties.

As such, this piece of jewelry was designed to be worn with the salt crystal coming in direct contact with the skin.

I call it Dead Sea Diamond.

By wearing the jewellery you take an essence of the Dead-Sea qualities with you wherever you are in the world – A private nutritious salt room that might shrink and soon disappear without your care and full awareness. 

The Dead Sea is actually teeming with vitality, even in ancient times, the Dead Sea was a sought-after destination for royalty, such as King Herod and Queen Cleopatra, who visited the Dead Sea to enrich their bodies with the essential minerals of the water and mud pools -it’s the only place where nature has created a fantastic combination of all minerals essential to skin health of the body – most important are magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc, bromide ,sulfur and strontium.

"The Dead Sea is a special place close to my heart. When I lived in Israel, every week I would go there and intermingle with its waters. When I left Israel, I knew that I would miss it most. When my partner joined me overseas, suddenly two special little boxes appeared. They contained beautiful necklaces, one for me and one for him. Immediately, we put on these two magical creations. Suddenly, on each one of our necks, there was a little perfect salt crystal derived directly from the Dead Sea. And right there, while the crystal twinkled on my skin, I was taken back to my favorite place on earth, reminding me of many magical moments and memories. Every time we go out to some event, my partner and I both wear the chains. The compliments are abundant. I smile quietly to myself, touching the perfect crystal, feeling its delicate oily wonder on my skin and I whisper, "thank you Michal" for creating all this magic."

"The Dead Sea is one of my favorite places in the world, it is at the same time mystical and deeply connected to the human body and physiology. I love to wear Michal Rothschild's necklace, I feel it's a source of energy for my soul and body."

"I love my necklace. Not only it's beautiful and spacial but also a Relict that contains inside my prayers for preserving the creations of nature. I carry the salt crystal with love and reverence. A constant reminder: connection and responsibility!"

The ‘Dead Sea’ is one of the Jewels in the crown of nature.

In recent decades, the Dead Sea is drying up at an alarming rate. Far and away the biggest cause of the rapid disappearance of the Dead Sea is the lack of water coming into it from its traditional sources
  1. The Dead Sea has already lost over 1/3 of its surface area.
  2. The Sea level has fallen over 25 meters since development of the region started early this century. The Sea’s depth is continuing to drop by over 1 meter per year.
  3. The shoreline in expected to drop from -411 meters to -430 meters by the year 2020.
  4. Water inflow levels have already been reduced to just 5% of its original volume, with annual surface inflows in the future predicted to only further decrease.
  5. The fall in the level of the Sea has lowered water tables in surrounding areas causing a drying up of micro-eco-systems and leading to land-subsidence – sinkholes.
  6. On the western shores of the Dead Sea 2000 sink wholes have been identified.
