There is a wide variety of jewelry available in Israel and jewelry made by Israeli artists but the most culturally significant and popular is Jewish Jewelry that has religious significance. Amongst the significant symbols of
the Judaic culture and Jewish religion, the most popular include the Star of David, the Hamsa, Chai (life, living) and Kabbalah jewelry.Star of David jewelry comes in many styles and designs and is significant to
both religious and cultural practices as the six-pointed Star represents the formal emblem of the House of David after King David, who ruled the ancient Israelites for hundreds of years. It is displayed on the official flag of Israel and in Kabbalah teachings it is interpreted as the culmination point of Heaven and Earth.The symbol for the Hamsa (origin Arabic, meaning “five) is represented by a palm shaped open hand usually depicted with two opposing thumbs and is often centered with a symbol of “the evil eye”. It is also referred to as the Hamsa Hand, Hamesh, Hamesh hand, Khamsa, and Chamsa. In the Jewish faith, it is also sometimes referred to as “the hand of Miriam”, in reference to the sister of the biblical Moses and Aaron. Five (hamesh in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews. It also symbolizes the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, "Heh", which represents one of G-d's holy names. It is also said to bring its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. The “evil eye” generally signifies a malignant spiritual influence caused by the jealousy of others and is a popular symbol in the Jewish culture. The chai is a very popular symbol used in the creation of Jewish Jewelry. The chai symbol consists of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet
Chet and Yod . Together, it means “living”, is related to the term for “life”. Some believe it refers to the Living G-d; others say it simply reflects Judaism's focus on the importance of life. The typical Jewish toast is l'chayim (to life). Gifts to charity are routinely given in multiples of 18 (the numeric value of the word Chai).
Another type of popular jewelry in the Jewish culture is Kabbalah jewelry. The study of Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism is a serious undertaking and one that is said should be done after Torah and Talmud studies are completed. Within the Jewish culture, it is said to have been subject to misinterpretation. However, the symbols used in making Kabbalah jewelry remain popular world-wide. Some stores selling Jewish jewelry include the more common symbols of the Star of David and Chamsa, while others include jewelry made from what is purported to be a form of 72 individual combinations of an ancient group of sacred letters said to represent the connection between the infinite spiritual world and the material world. Kabbalah red-string jewelry is very popular and is said to have its origin with Rachel, one of the four Mothers or Matriarchs of the Jewish people.Rachel, the mother of Joseph, was said have healing and protective powers. It is believed that the 7 red strings (usually banded together) symbolize the color of blood, or life and are representative of the qualities of the Rachel - perseverance, faith, and humility. It is also believed to protect one against the destructive forces of the Evil Eye.Whether choosing a Star of David, Hamsa, Chai or Kabbalah jewelry piece,
