Star of David with Hebrew Letters
The Star of David, known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David is an important symbol of modern Jewish identity and Judaism, especially considering its position in the center of the flag of Israel. Also known as a Kabbalistic symbol attributed to King David, the Star of David is considered to be a talisman that invokes the protection of Heaven from physical and spiritual harm. This is the reason why many Judaica items have Stars of David on them, especially jewellery such as bracelets and pendants.
Jewish jewellery is a popular way for Jews across the world to connect with, and show off their heritage. Star of David pendants are especially popular and offer a timeless look that never goes out of style. In recent years Star of David pendants have become a popular Bat Mitzvah gift, sure to be cherished for many years.
Remarkably, all 22 letters of the Hebrew letters can be found within the shape of the Star of David. This might not be a mere coincidence but actually the reason why the Star of David was chosen as the symbol for David's shield: In ancient times every king had a personal drawing on his shield. This drawing separated him and allowed other soldiers to identify him. On King's David shield was the symbol of a Star of David, possibly in order to remind soldiers to pray during the war because the Star of David contains all of the letters needed to pray.
The letters inside the Star of David also enhance the mystic significance of the ancient symbol. Made of dazzling diamonds and set in 18 karat yellow gold, the combination between the Hebrew letters and the traditional symbol offers a beautiful and mesmerizing look.
