When sacred Hebrew words are inscribed on a jewelry item, it is thought to create a powerful amulet. Hebrew jewelry items always have specific meaning and story behind it. Before purchasing a Hebrew necklace, bracelet or a ring, we highly recommend that you learn the meaning behind it.

Hebrew necklace with quotations from the holy sources
Hebrew jewelry is often inscribed with quotes from holy sources and prayers.  Many psalms found on jewelry accessories are taken from the poetic writings of the bible, mainly the book of Psalms which is believed to have been written by King David, the Song of Songs, written by King Solomon, and the book of Ecclesiastes.

A Hebrew necklace usually features prominent Jewish motifs that every Jewish person can relate to, such
as the Star of David.  A very popular Hebrew necklace is inscribed with portions of Shema Yisrael prayer – the best known Jewish prayer.  Contemporary Judaica designers take these ancient symbols, give them new interpretations with appropriate meaning. This Shema Yisrael pendant by Israeli studio design, Adina Plastelina is a perfect example to how jewelry designers stay in tune with current fashion.

Sometimes the quotations might be suitable for specific occasions.  A very popular Hebrew pendant is Ani LeDoi Li (I am my beloved's). These Psalms said at the Jewish wedding by the bride and groom. Hebrew necklaces or other Judaica artworks inscribed with this mutual promise are popular gifts for Jewish weddings. Another blessing inscribed on many pieces of Hebrew jewelry is the daughters blessing which translates to: " May God make you as Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah". In Jewish tradition, this is the way fathers bless their daughters every Saturday night after reciting the prayers. Pieces of jewelry inscribed with the daughters blessing in Hebrew are very common as Bat Mitzvah gifts and gifts for the bride on her wedding day.

Hebrew necklace inscribed with the famous song Eshet Chayil is a common romantic gift usually given by a
husband to his wife. Eshet Chayil, woman of valor, is traditionally sung to the wife and mother, to emphasize her significant role in the family.

Another prayer found on Jewish jewelry accessories is Tefilat HaDerch, the traveler's prayer, which is recited by the believer upon taking a long journey. Many Jewish people who travel around the world keep a copy of Tefilat HaDerch prayer within reach. Tefilat HaDerech Jewish accessories on them allow the wearer to carry this blessing wherever they go. These pieces might also include other protective motifs such as the Star of David or Hamsa hand. Tefilat HaDerech necklace is often given as a gift to soldiers, businessmen and businesswomen and constant travelers.

Birkat Kohnaim is a very powerful blessing taken out from the book of Exodus. Birkat Kohanim necklace is
considered a very powerful protective amulet. The power of the blessing is derived Birkat Hakohanim, also
known as the Priestly blessing can only recited by the Kohens, who are decedents of Aaron and his sons. The Kohens were the high priests in the Sinai desert. Following God's commandment, Aaron and his sons blessed the Israelites with this powerful blessing. The power of the blessing derives from acknowledging the explicit name of God which lost in translation.

This piece of jewelry is also an example for a Hebrew necklace against the evil eye.
These accessories feature images of Hamsa hand, images of eyes and fishes. Many of the Hebrew words found of jewelry accessories have kabbalsit meaning. Many of Kabbalah inspired jewelry accessories feature Hebrew letters sequences and  words. The letters are initials of blessing and prayers or many kinds of Kabbalist codes, such as the 72 names of God. Kabbalah uses these Kabbalist codes to mediate material world and the spiritual world. This Aleph-Lamed-Dalet combination is believed banish the Evil Eye by fighting negative energies and drawing positive ones instead. Kabbalah uses many motifs against the  evil eye, and popular phrases against the evil eye - Ben Porat Yoseph.
