Chai jewelry has over 100 different styles that most commonly include necklaces and pendents but you'll also find beautiful bracelets and earrings in this selection.

Israel's national stone happens to be found in the southern region of Israel around the most southern city of Eilat. During the times of King Solomon, he established copper mines in the area, but little did King Solomon know that the minerals from the copper would also create this beautiful green-blue stone, often found with hints of red. Eilat Stone with a gold setting allow the natural coloring to pop and look absolutely elegant. If you have a snake-chain charm bracelet, you can also add a little Chai charm on for a truely Israeli piece of jewelry.
