Hoshen Jewelry Buying Guide
Hoshen jewelry depicts the powerful breastplate worn only by the High Priest during the time of the Tabernacle and Temples. This decorative piece has 12 stones on it, each representing one of the Tribes of Israel and contained two mystical elements called Urim and Thummim that helped determine Hashem's will during certain occasions. The colorful stones have made the Hoshen an incredibly popular piece of Biblical jewelry, as it represents the entire nation of Israel and a holy period in Jewish history. While the selection is not so large, each piece of meaning jewelry shows top craftsmanship and are absolutely gorgeous.
Hoshen charms feature the multicolored breastplate in the traditional rectangular look, and many are made by the incredibly talented Marina Jewelry. Charms and beads combine the Hoshen with the Star of David, Shema Yisrael, and the names of the 12 Tribes. Each one is a lovely addition to any snake chain charm bracelet, and looks like a piece of art. The Hoshen will always sparkle and shine whenever you choose to wear your bracelet.
