Details

925 Sterling Silver

Size: 4.7cm X 5cm / 1.9" X 2" 

This large beautiful work of art will be a treasured keepsake, whether as a bold piece of jewelry, or as a charm.  It comes with a blackened sterling silver chain or a black silicone cord in your choice of length. 

The center of this Jewish medallion from Persia is set with an oval turquoise, as blue has been used as a "lucky" color in the Middle East for 5000 years.  A four-line Hebrew inscription contains the 42 initial letters of the prayer Ana Bekoach, one of the ancient names of God. 

Amulets were intended to guard their owners' families and property from natural disasters, spells, and evil spirits.  Some were used to heal sickess and cure infertility; others were meant to shield the traveler from peril, to promote success and bounty, and even to secure the affection of friends and lovers. 

A sterling silver chain or black silicone cord in your choice of length are available for an additional fee. 

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a small description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
