FREE Israel Museum Sterling Silver Childbirth Pendant
925 Sterling silver pendent, typical of Jewish Persian amulets, this one is intended for the woman in childbirth. Hung on leather cord necklace.
The foliate form and ornamentation on this amulet render it typical of Jewish Persian amulets intended for the woman in childbirth. The Hebrew inscription is taken from Psalms 121:1-8 and also includes the name 'Jochebed', the mother of Moses and Aaron, who was known for her easy deliveries.
Amulets were intended to guard their owners' families and property from natural disasters, spells, and evil spirits. Some were used to heal sickess and cure infertility, others were meant to shield the traveler from peril, to promote success and bounty, and even to secure the affection of friends and lovers.
Complete with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and includes a historical background in English and Hebrew.
