Judaica art is known for its return to the roots of Judiasm, like this pendant necklace with the openeing Hebrew phrase of Shema Israel (Also written as Yisrael) engraved on it.
This piece of gold jewelry is combined with silver jewelry, forming two rings, a small gold cylinder hole and a larger outer circle of silver. The inner layer is shaped like a braid and the outer silver flattens out and displays the sentance Shema Israel Hashem Elokienu Hashem Echad (translated as: wording the phrase Listen O Israel, Hashem is our G-d, Hashem is One) from the book Deuteronomy in the bible. Meir Avni is the artist from Israel who designed this exquisite piece of Jewish Jewelry.
The main feature of the pendant is how the silver ring rotates around the gold cylinder, thus bringing a metaphor of the cycle of life, something well-known in the Jewish arts. The prayer written on the silver surface plays an important role in a Jewish lifestyle, It is said twice a day during daily prayers and it also features in Mezuzas on the doorframe of every Jewish home. The words are meant to remind us all that Hashem is the one and only God. The Passuk [prayer] is known for being the last words of dying Jews as well, such as Rabbi Akiva, whose soul left as his body as he finished reciting these forceful words.
This meaningful necklace is a good choice of gift if you want to give someone you love a unique piece of Israeli jewelry. The pendant comes with a chain and a little gift box.
