Studio Golan Jewelry Buying Guide
Studio Golan blends ancient blessings with a modern look for an incredibly unique piece of jewelry. Inspired by Kabbalah and Judaism, each of their pieces incorporate some symbol, name, blessing, or meaningful prayer that is said to have some sort of power to it. Studio Golan's jewelry is all hand crafted, allowing the artist to go on a spiritual journey themselves while making these beautiful sterling silver and gold pieces. Meaningful jewelry like this is not easy to come by, and offers a shine like no other, as even your soul will enjoy such a piece of jewelry.
Kabbalah is Jewish mysticism, and has its own level of spirituality. A few of Kabbalah's basic foundations have been turned into beautiful pieces of wearable art such as this Sefirot (emanations) map. Kabbalah has come up with the 72 Holy Names of G-d which is made up of three letter names. While the 72 names create quite the necklace, the three letter names are often more subtle, and attributed to different qualities like wealth and healing. One of Kabbalah's most popular and well-known prayers is Ana Bekoach, which is the 42 letter name of G-d and is frequently found on Kabbalah jewelry like this dog tag necklace. When it comes to symbols, many of Judaism's symbols are used in Kabbalah, but there is also a mystical key that makes for a great pendent.
The Priestly Blessing is said every day in Israel and on holidays everywhere else in the world. This powerful blessing is preformed by Kohanim and asks for the nation of Israel to be kept safe. Studio Golan has incorporated this blessing with the Hoshen, which was worn by the Kohen Gadol and together is a powerful piece. Most of the Priestly Blessing jewelry is more simple, as seen on the back of this sculpted Star of David and on this leather bracelet and some jewelry has more than one blessing on it. This five Hamsa necklace has the words of Porat Yosef on the first Hamsa and the Priestly Blessing on the next four. For something a bit more decorative, there is also this beautiful necklace with a garnet, hiding the blessing on the back on the pendent.
Shema Yisrael is possibly the most well-known prayer. It originates in Deuteronomy and has since shown the eternal bond between the Jewish people and G-d. Shema Yisrael jewelry can be simple like this spinning necklace or incredibly decorative like this beaded opalite necklace. Of course there are also earrings and bracelets, like this leather one, and some of the pieces include stunning gems and stones like this onyx necklace. Shema Yisrael jewelry also includes classic Jewish symbols like Stars of David, Hamsas, and mezuzahs, so choosing your favorite might be a bit difficult because each piece of Studio Golan jewelry with Shema Yisrael is more beautiful than the next.
The Traveler's Prayer is one that wishes someone who goes a long way success on their trip and that they should get from one place to another as easily as possible. Rings, bracelets, and necklaces incorporate the blessing in a beautiful way, and can be given to someone planning on doing a lot of traveling in their lifetime. Many include different blessings like this necklace with Shema Yisrael and this sterling silver bracelet and ring with a ruby which both have Porat Yosef. The Traveler's Prayer on jewelry makes it the perfect gift for anyone who has wanderlust or travels for work.
