Your Questions About Jewish Jewelry, Answered
Buying jewelry of any kind can be stressful, whether you're picking something out for yourself or you're picking out a gift. Shopping for Jewish jewelry can be even tougher -- there are so many different symbols, artists, designs, and materials to choose from! But don't worry -- Judaica Webstore has you covered. We have compiled this Q&A so that your shopping experience will be as extraordinary as whichever piece you land on. For even more guidance, check out our extensive guide to Jewish & Israeli Jewelry.
On which occasions and Jewish holidays is it appropriate to gift jewelry?
Jewelry is sure to please any day of the year, but it is a popular gift to give to teens celebrating their bat mitzvah or bar mitzvah, at engagement parties, as a wedding gift, for someone who has just completed converting to Judaism, birthdays, graduations, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and wedding anniversaries. Some families also have the custom of gifting jewelry during Jewish holidays like Hanukkah, Passover, or Rosh Hashanah, but each family and community has their own custom. If you aren't sure, you can ask friends, family, or members of your community what is the norm.
Is Jewish jewelry only for women?
Absolutely not! We have a wide variety of jewelry for men, including from Star of David necklaces, Lion of Judah rings, Jewishly inspired cufflinks, and designer watches. Jewish jewelry from Israel makes a great gift for guys, whether he is celebrating his bar mitzvah, a birthday, a graduation, Father's Day, or an anniversary. We also have a variety of jewelry for children of all genders.
How do I decide what to get?
When buying a piece of jewelry, it's important to ask yourself a few questions. First: what is your budget, and how much are you looking to spend? Some materials and gems are much more costly than others. If you're on a budget but still want something elegant, sterling silver is the way to go. If you're looking to spend more, Israeli jewelry is famous for featuring Eilat Stones, Roman Glass, and luxurious gold jewelry with Jewish symbols like the Star of David, Hamsas, pomegranates, and Jewish prayers.
What do all of the different symbols mean?
Each Jewish symbol is unique and has different meanings and origins. For example, the Hamsa is an ancient symbol of protection found in many Middle Eastern cultures, while the menorah is a uniquely Jewish symbol can be traced back to Torah times. This guide explains the different types of Jewish jewelry and provides insight as to their meanings. If you're browsing our site and see a symbol that you want to know more about, each product description explains what the symbol is and what it represents.
