Jewish Jewelry

One of the most popular ways for Jews across the globe to connect with, and show off their heritage is by wearing Jewish jewelry, of which there are incalculable types. These include, for example, classics that never go out of style such as Hamsa Jewelry, Chai and Star of David necklaces.

As of late, Jewish Jewelry designers have pushed their creativity to new limits, crafting Jewish charms “with a twist,” such as gold Star of David mezuzah pendant (a combination of two highly Jewish-associated symbols). Naturally, Jewish jewelry makes for exceptionally popular birthday and bat mitzvah gifts.

Perhaps the symbol most associated with Judaism is the Star of David. There are many explanations behind the meaning of this esoteric emblem. One explanation, for example, asserts that it was engraved on King David’s warrior’s shields. In Judaica, the Star of David is used for Jewelry, wall-hangings, key chains, and more. Interestingly, it is one of the few pieces of Jewish jewelry worn by both men and women.

Hamsa, Arabic for the number five, is one of the oldest religious symbols. Also called “Hand of Miriam” or “Hamsa Hand,” this talisman is popular especially amongthose who seek protective charms. There are Hamsa pendants, Hamsa earrings, Hamsa bracelets and even rings! Due to the Hamsa‘s believed protecting qualities, many people use it not just for Jewelry-purposes but also as a wall-hanging, in order to protect their homes. Oftentimes they will have Biblical passages written on the Hamsas, perhaps for further protection. This amulet is extremely pervasive and is also popular among many non-Jews.

One of the most up-to-the-minute trends in Jewish jewelry is the greenish-blue Eilat stone, also known as King Solomon stone. It is Israel’s national stone and is used to produce multifarious kinds of jewelry, notably in its rough form.

Jewish jewelry is yet another example indicating the increasing popularity and awareness of Judaism. It is a unique way both to adorn your body and take pride in your religion and its marvelous history.

Jewish Jewelry Guide

Judaism is a religion that celebrates a multitude of celebrations and lifecycles. Jewish people live in large communities all over the world that gather together for joyous occasions. These include celebrating Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, which mark an entrance into adulthood for boys and girls at ages thirteen and twelve respectfully. Other celebrations include engagements and weddings. There is a long standing tradition in Judaism to give gifts for these types of occasions. A popular gift is often jewelry, and for Jewish events there is a special genre of Jewish jewelry. Jewish jewelry has specific Jewish themes which include Magen David, Hamsa, Choshen, and Kabbalah.

Jewelry with Magen David Symbol

The Magen David, also known as the Jewish star, is the symbol for Judaism. The direct translation of Magen David is the shield of David. The hexagram shape gained recognition as a symbol of the Jewish community around the time of the 17th century. This symbol continues to represent Judaism today and is featured in the center of the Israeli flag.

The Magen David symbol is featured in many Jewish jewelry items. For example, the Magen David necklace is very popular. The Jewish star on the necklace comes in many styles and designs, which range from classic and simple to modern and very sophisticated. These necklaces can be made of silver or gold, usually with simple chains and clasps. The star itself may be adorned with a diamond or jewel.

Jewelry with Hamsa Symbol

The Hamsa symbol is a design of an upside down palm. Traditionally, the Hamsa represents protection from evil. The symbol has Sephardic Jewish roots and has gained recent popularity in the Jewish and Israeli worlds alike. The thumb and pinky fingers point outwards on this open hand symbol. Many Hamsas often have an evil eye or fish motif drawn in its center.

Jewish jewelry with the Hamsa symbol is quite common, as it has Kabbalistic and Israeli connotations. Visitors to the holy land often purchase Hamsa jewelry to bring home. Hamsa jewelry can vary in terms of style and design. Classic styles will be silver and plain, but there are also elaborate colorful designs with evil eye and fish details. Chai, the Hebrew word for life, is often displayed on the Hamsa.

Choshen Jewelry

Choshen jewelry refers to the design of the breastplate of the High Priests of the ancient Temple. This design was composed of twelve stones that are referenced in the Book of Exodus. These colorful stones create a tiled look which suits many jewelry items. Choshen jewelry usually comes in the form of a necklace, in silver or gold.

Kabbalah Jewelry

Kabbalah jewelry refers to designs that have mystical and spiritual roots. These include Hamsa, charms for success and health, names of G-d, and evil eye designs. These designs are most commonly featured on bracelets. The materials of the charms can be silver or pewter, while the material of the bracelet is usually a red string. The red string is sometimes braided.

Jewelry with Magen David, Hamsa, Choshen, and Kabbalistic designs makes it distinctively Jewish. This type of jewelry is a great gift for all types of Jewish celebrations, but especially relevant for Bat Mitzvahs and weddings.
