A Contemporary Fashion Trend – Jewish Jewelry

If you've been shopping for jewelry recently, you've surely come across Jewish jewelry. This diversity of Jewish jewelry includes Jewish wedding rings inscribed with biblical verses, Hebrew name necklaces, Menorah pendants, Star of David pendants, Hamsa pendants, and many other symbolic Jewish pendants.

Jewish Jewelry from a Long Long Time Ago

Have you ever wondered what the origin of Jewish jewelry is? Aaron - the first High Priest of the Jewish nation and Moses' older brother – was probably the first person to wear a form of Jewish jewelry.

When the ancient Hebrews wandered around the desert after their exodus from Egypt, Aaron wore the well-known gold breastplate with 12 precious stones in it. Each of the stones represented one of the 12 tribes of Israel. He also wore a gold plate on his forehead with G-d's name on it. Although he didn't know he would start a Jewish jewelry trend, Aaron can be considered the first person to wear Jewish jewelry. Imagine - Jewish jewelry over 3000 years ago!

Old – But Not as Ancient – Jewish Jewelry

Notwithstanding Aaron's gold ornaments, when we refer to Jewish jewelry we're actually referring to a Jewish jewelry trend that traces back about 1000 years. During that time amulets worn around the neck became known for their protective powers against evil. There were Jewish amulets too – a rolled up piece of hand-written parchment with sacred words and a Star of David symbol. These amulets are Jewish jewelry.

Although amulets as Jewish jewelry were known in Judaism previously, Star of David amulets are known only from the 12th century onwards. Because of this, these amulets specifically are considered the oldest Jewish jewelry known to us today. We can learn from this that Jewish jewelry has been around for hundreds of years.

About 700 years later, in the 19th century, many Jews used to wear all kinds of Jewish jewelry, such as Mezuzah pendants, Star of David pendants, and Menorah pendants depicting the seven-branched candelabra that stood in the Jewish Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Modern Jewish Jewelry

The 1950s onwards have been an age where the popularity of Jewish Jewelry has steadily increased. After World War II, the Holocaust, and the establishment of the State of Israel, many people wanted to present their Judaism externally as well as internally. After the attempt to annihilate the Jewish people, Jews worldwide felt – more than ever before – proud to have their own country. It's because of this sentiment that many forms of Jewish Jewelry are available today, Jewish jewelry such as:

  • Jerusalem Pendants and other Jerusalem Jewelry
  • Chai Pendants – "Chai" meaning "alive" in Hebrew
  • Mezuzah Pendants
  • Ancient coin jewelry, set with coins from the Second Temple period – a very unique form of Jewish Jewelry
  • Hamsa Pendants
  • And more…

Jewish Jewelry Today

Living today, in the 21st century, we see more and more the need people have for individualism. This is one of the reasons why Jewish Jewelry and name necklaces' popularity is sky high. You can see them in every country and in every language. Another way to express your individualism is by expressing your beliefs. Wearing Jewish jewelry is doing just that and that's why it's so popular today.
