It is also commonly described as “Magen David” or “The Shield of David”, and it is believed that it came from the shield of King David. But, there is no concrete evidence that this is true.

Although there are various assumptions and metaphorical meanings behind this motif, the exact definition, and importance behind the 2 tangled triangles are not known. If you want the accessory to feature this star, you are lucky, especially since there are various necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings that you can opt for.

Jewish families often place a Mezuzah on the left side of their doors, and it serves as a constant reminder that God is always present in their daily lives. Now, you might be wondering – what is it exactly? Well, simply said, it is a piece of paper that features handwritten verses for the Torah.

This motif is one that is quite popular and strong, especially since it offers protection to Israeli people, hence, it is commonly used as a theme for accessories, particularly pendants and lockets. There are various ones you can choose from, and if you want to see some examples of what you can choose, you can check this out for more info.

  1. “Shema Yisrael” – Earrings

In order for you to understand this motif, you first need to learn the definition of the 2 words. “Shema” is a Hebrew term that translates to “hear”, while “Yisrael”, is translated to “Israel”. Once you combine the two words, you get “Hear, Israel…” which is how a part of the Holy Book begins. The portion of the book features a prayer that people recite two times each day.

There is basically thousands of version, designs, colors, and jewelry pieces that you can get with this symbol at judaicawebstore.com, which means that you’ll definitely find something that fit a particular style. Additionally, the prayer is often written in the previously mentioned mezuzah, hence, you can choose to purchase both pieces and create a meaningful present.

  1. “The Menorah” – Bracelets And Pendants

A menorah is a ritual object used by all traditional Jewish families during the 8 days of Hanukkah. It has seven places for seven candles, and it refers to a period after Israelis overcame the emigration from Egypt. It was also used later on in the wild and of course, in various temples across Israel.

Before “The Star of David” emerged and became a staple of the country, the menorah used to hold that place. But, nonetheless, it is still commonly used in this country and religion. It is featured on all types of jewelry, however, they can most commonly be found on lockets and earrings.

  1. “Ani Le Dodi” – Bracelets And Rings

The expression “Ani Le’ Dodi Be’ Dodi Li” comes from a book titled the Song of Solomon. It can be translated to “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”, which makes it a perfect gift for anniversaries, wedding day, and birthdays. It is possibly the most traditional expression used for manufacturing rings for engagements and weddings.

Since there are a lot of words, it is best if you opt for a ring or bracelets, especially if you want the piece to feature the entire expression. Naturally, you will find it in various designs, colors, and sizes, and of course, the jewelry is produced from various metals including gold, silver, and stainless steel.

  1. “A Dove” – Pendants And Earrings

By now, you are probably familiar with the tale of Noah’s arch, and if so, then you also know about the famous flood that almost ended the entire Earth. Since then, the dove has remained a figure of hope, faith, and harmony. A lot of people in Israel embrace this gentle symbol as a way to express optimism and hopes for a better future.

However, there is one thing that you should keep in mind. The dove is often fused with other Jewish themes like the Star of David, the Hamsa, or the Mezuzah, hence, do not be confused if you see it in various motif combinations. It is usually gifted to and worn by women, especially since it usually includes other details such as gemstones or zirconium.

  1. “Hamsa” – Earrings, Lockets, And Bracelets

When translated, “Hamsa” means “5”. It is a symbol that is formed like a hand and it is incredibly significant for Muslims, Jews, and a lot of Christians. You can see this all over the world, especially in North Africa and some Middle Eastern countries, and it is believed that it can get rid of the evil eye. It also serves as a protection charm for the wearer.

It is often introduced as a lucky talisman and it can be mixed with other Jewish symbols, hence, do not be surprised if you see it with an eye, star, or chai. It comes in various shapes and designs, and it can also be found on other religious items as well – which is kind of normal, especially since it is lucky.

Conclusion

So, there you have it. The symbols mentioned above are some of the most popular ones featured on jewelry of all types. Hence, now that you know what you can opt for, as well as the meaning behind a specific piece, do not waste any more time. Instead, start searching for a jewelry piece that will suit your needs perfectly.
