Jewish Jewelry holds a great deal of symbolism for those who wear these special pieces of jewelry. For some, Jewish jewelry is intended to be worn for all to see and for others these pieces are meant to be personal. Jewish Jewelry has developed over the years, first being worn strictly during ritual ceremonies and eventually finding a place in popular culture.
Jewish Jewelry can incorporate many different types of designs. One of the more popular of pieces is the Star of David. Also known as the Magen David, this 6 pointed star design is recognized as the symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism.
Other symbolic Jewish Jewelry designs include the Hamsa. This hand design represents the Jewish faiths’ belief in a higher power. Hamsa Pendants come in all sizes, both in gold and adorned with diamonds. One of the more popular Jewish Jewelry pieces is the Chai symbol. Chai, which means life, represents life and unity which are important themes in the Jewish religion.
Jewish Jewelry pieces can be found in many forms including pendants, necklaces, earrings and even rings. Many of these jewelry pieces are encrusted with diamonds or other precious gemstones and are offered in a variety of metals such as white gold and platinum.
Often times Jewish Jewelry is given as gifts to Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah boys and girls as a symbol of their entry into Jewish adulthood. Jewish Jewelry can also be a perfect gift for a new baby, wedding, anniversary or birthday.
