Conflict Jewelry: 'My Israel' Necklace Stirs Debate

A tiny map of Israel is making a big statement.

The politically charged jewelry, available in gold, silver and gold-plated silver, is being sold in the U.S. on the Web site Modern Tribe, which timed the release of the necklace to coincide with Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day.
