THE WESTERN WALL COLLECTION HAS TOUCHED MANY HEARTS WORLDWIDE…
And we know this holiday season you want to be the best gift-giver that you can be!
Our newest Sterling Silver Necklaces embody deep symbolism that is recognizable to all cultures and backgrounds from all over the world. Our array of Jewish Jewelry has always been a popular gift when it comes to loved ones in your lives. Since we know the importance of symbolism in your culture and your deep connection to your relationships (whether it's your partner, parent, best friend, child, or sibling) we created a few more necklaces and dog tags for the season of Hanukkah 2021.
THE EVIL EYE
The Evil Eye is one of the world’s most widely recognized symbols. More notably, the Evil Eye jewelry is worn by a diverse number of people from around the world!
Did you know that the Evil Eye has been recorded by the Mesopotamians 5,000 years ago?! That’s right! Humans have been warding off evil forces by wearing this symbol to protect themselves from “the look”.
The Evil Eye, or the "look" or the "stare", is a talisman meant to protect you from evil spirits. It is also believed to bring bad luck to the person (or spirit) aiming to direct bad energy towards you. It almost acts as a "repellent", especially during difficult times.
THE HAMSA HAND
Like the Evil Eye, the Hamsa Hand is also one of the most recognizable symbols in the world!
The word "Hamsa" means "five" in Hebrew and this symbol is also known by many names such as:
The Hand of Fatima
Hand of Miriam
The Hand of Mother May
...and other variations.
Originally, it was worn (and still is) to ward off evil. But over time as our world changed the meaning of the Hamsa symbol has evolved to our desire for positivity and safety from evil.
Although it originated from the Middle East this symbol is used by almost all major faiths and cultures from all over the world from Eastern culture to Western culture and from Judaism to Buddhism.
There are two main styles of the Hamsa hand which can be worn with the hand pointing upwards or downwards. Our Hamsa Hand Sterling Silver Necklace is pointing downwards which is a sign of invitation to welcome good things to enter into your life.
THE TREE OF LIFE
The Tree of Life symbolize interconnectedness. This universal symbol appears grounded, calm, and inspiring. This symbol is seen in many cultures and history from Celtic Culture to Buddhism to Ancient Egypt! The Tree of Life Jewelry is worn as bohemian fashion or for a reflection of beliefs.
The Tree of Life is notably represented with branches and leaves reaching outward within a circle. In life, all trees appear the same but upon a closer look, no two trees are the same.
This symbol is a reminder of our individuality, our connection with the world, and the cycles of growth during hard times in our lives.
Last but not least, similar to the Tree of Life, we have the Sefirot Sterling Silver Necklace.
The Sefirot is a series of attributes that makes up “oneness” – just as we as humans are made up of many attributes to create who we are as individuals!
This wonderful Sefirot Dog Tag Sterling Silver necklace is a reminder of everything that creates life itself.
There are 10 sefirot (some have even called this figure the “Tree of Life”).
Gevurah (Might) or Din (Judgment)
Malkhut (Sovereignty) or Shekhinah (the Divine Presence)
Each represents a significant characteristic that identifies the wholeness of life.
We know these sterling silver necklaces have the potential to be wrapped in a gift box for your loved one. If you love these necklaces as much as we do contact one of our LSJ specialists to start your holiday shopping!
