The Old City of Jerusalem has a rule that all buildings built within the thousands-year-old city must have a Jerusalem Stone facade. The stone was found in the quarries in and around Jerusalem, and come in variety of colors that all look incredible. From light colors like this "If I forget Jerusalem" necklace and this light pink stone with a Hamsa, to darker reds as seen with these tallit clips. Some jewelry is a symbol of peace as seen with this Hamsa dove. There are so many amazing options to choose from with Jerusalem Stone jewelry.
Lion of Judah
The Lion of Judah can be found on the emblem of Jerusalem, as the city once was the home to king from the tribe of Judah which was represented by a lion. This mighty lion can be found across the city and is a symbol of strength, which perfectly resembles Jerusalem. You can find the Lion of Judah on jewelry pieces alone or with different Jewish symbols such as the menorah. The Lion of Judah was also part of the first Zionist Congress symbol as seen with this necklace but also looks like the Jerusalem flag on this ring.
If I Forget Thee Jerusalem
The famous quote "if I forget thee Jerusalem, let my right hand fall" can be found in Psalms and resonates with us always. Many always remember Jerusalem but these pendents are a constant reminder and a way to uplift our spirits. The words are extra meaningful when written on Jerusalem Stone, the Stone used for the Temple, the Western Wall, and the original city of Jerusalem, in either Hebrew or English. Some of these necklaces also include nano-inscribed Torah on the necklace for a spectacular piece of jewelry.
Israeli song writer and singer, Naomi Shemer, wrote a song called "Jerusalem of Gold" about how Jerusalem is so precious to the Jewish people. The city actually seems as though it turns to gold during sunrise and sunset as the Old City walls shine against the sun and gold Jerusalem jewelry captures this special look. Many of these pieces feature the Star of David, with either the "Jerusalem" written on the star or an image of the beautiful Jerusalem skyline. There are also jewelry pieces that feature Jerusalem with the Western Wall motif, making the gold look like Jerusalem Stone.
