Another way to say "I love you" is with the words Ani Ledodi, written in a couple of different languages, or really with just any of these love charms.
Star of David Charms
As we said before, what would a Jewish charm bracelet be without a Star of David? Our selection of Star of David beads and charms is excellent, whether it be a simple silver star, made of blue opal, or combined with any number of other Jewish symbols. Some of the favorites that include a Star of David on it are shofars, the Tree of Life, Chai, and the Hoshen. Aside for these combined symbols, there are also charms that just show off the Star of David for what it is, the symbol of the Jewish people and Israel. There are those with a Star of David pattern on Eilat Stone and painted enamel pattern and those decorated with sparkling multicolored gemstones. There are so many beautiful options to choose from, it is so difficult to chose just one.
Hamsa Charms feature one of Judaism's most powerful and ancient symbols. The Hamsa is said to be an amulet of protection against the Evil Eye, keeping the wearer in good tidings and good luck. Eilat Stone is a popular addition to the classic Hamsa, whether it be on a bead or as the background to a hanging charm. Many Hamsas have an eye in the middle, keeping a look out for bad vibes, and so rather than having an eye engraved in these charms, they use cubic zirconia and Lapis Lazuli for some extra sparkle in your style. Hamsas have been seen recently in the fashion world and you can fit right in with any of these.
Biblical Charms tell stories from the Torah and looks great on a charm bracelet. The Tree of Life from the Garden of Eden can be found in multiple styles with gemstones, Noah's Ark looks like its packed and ready to go conquer the flood, and the Hoshen glitters and glistens on any bead or charm. Some of these beads and charms also include different Jewish prayers and versus along the side like Shema Yisrael and the Priestly Blessing, but are also just beautiful pieces of Jewish jewelry. Biblical charms are meaningful and are sure to brighten up anyone's Jewish charm bracelet.
