A beautiful piece of jewelry with a kabbalistic flavor, this will be a treasured gift for a lifetime. Produced according to kabbalistic traditions, these necklaces are only assembled once a month.
Around the disk is the Hebrew text of the basic Jewish creed: Shema Yisrael, Hashem Elokeinu, Hashem Echad (Hear, O Israel, Hashem is our God, Hashem is One) (Deuteronomy 6:4). God's name is not spelled out on the pendant, to avoid desecration.
Around the Star of David are the initial letters of the Biblical verse Ben Porat Yosef, Ben Porat Alei Ayin ("A fruitful son is Yosef (Joseph), a fruitful son by a spring.") (Genesis 49:22). This verse is said to protect from the evil eye, and is suitable for men and women.
According to a kabbalistic tradition, the five metals must be combined on the Saturday night after a full moon, when Jupiter's influence is felt.
Under the central Star of David of the sterling silver pendant is pure gold. Below it are layers of lead, tin, and copper.
Comes with sterling silver chain in your choice of length.
