The Star of David necklace is definitely one of the most popular Jewish jewelry accessories there is. Jewish men and women from around the world proudly wear Star of David necklaces around their necks. Contemporary Judaica artists have taken this ancient symbol and turned it into a work of art. Star of David necklace provides a fascinating opportunity to observe how one ancient symbol has incorporated modern elements so successfully.

As a national symbol, Star of David is relatively new. It is only toward the end of the 19th century that Jews across Europe began to use it as a unifying symbol of their communities and decorate their synagogues with it. If you track down the sources of this symbol, you'll find that they are quite old. In the Middle Ages, several different cultures used the Star of David as an amulet. In fact, it used to play an important part in religious rituals to help fight demons and evil spirits. To this day, the Star of David is often associated with the five pointed star known as Solomon's Seal that was used for similar purposes. The distinctive shape of the star was believed to have supernatural powers.

But the mystical power of the Star of David is much more than an ancient myth. The Jewish school of thought has attributed very special qualities to this sign. The six pointed star is believed to describe King David's Shield, also known as the Star of David or Magen David in Hebrew which literally means shield or protector. The Hebrew name of the Jewish star points to probable origin of the sign. According to tradition, the six pointed star had originally come from King David's shield. King David's shield was used by King David and his warriors in battlefield leading his army to great victories documented in history. These victories paved the way to the construction of the first holy temple by King David's son, King Solomon. To this day, the star’s special symmetrical shape is believed to draw divine protection and blessing.

In1948 , the state of Israel was established. Not without controversy, the Star of David was displayed on the national flag of Israel. To this day, the Star of David stands proudly at the heart of the Israeli flag. For many Diaspora Jews, the Star of David is a sign of connection to the Jewish nation and the state of Israel. The Star of David necklace carries with it many cultural and historical associations including the history of the Jewish nation and the Jewish state.

Highly conscious of the special qualities attributed to the star, contemporary Judaica artists have been designing powerful amulets in various creative designs. A typical Star of David necklace often incorporates other motifs meant to protect the wearer from the evil eye such as an image of an eye or a Hamsa hand, quotations from the bible in Hebrew, or energetic stones.

Kabbalah jewelry puts a special focus on these motifs. In addition to the Star of David, Kabbalist protective amulets include codes that are auspicious of love, success, health, and other positive life forces. The combination of these elements, it is believed, turns the Star of David necklace into a powerful Jewish charm.

Contemporary designers are doing their part to stay in tune with the current fashion trends. Such Israeli designers as Adina Plastelina have given the Star a range of vivacious and classic colors, making it an enjoyable and contemporary thing to wear by Jewish women and men everywhere. These artists give the Star of David necklace a modern touch using intriguing shapes without losing its appropriate meaning.

Other designers prefer more moderate, classic styles for their Star of David necklaces by using silver and gold.

Other artists choose to focus on the fact that this symbol has become the most recognizable sign of the Jewish national identity. The Star of David is not a religious symbol, nor is it part of any commandment or prayer, yet it has become a national symbol by telling the story and representing the history of the Jewish nation and state. The Star of David signifies the bond that has connected Diaspora Jews for more than two thousands years. With response to the growing demand, Judaica artists design a wide variety of Star of David jewelry to fit any personal style or taste.
