Jewelry is a great gift to bring to Jewish occasions. Jewish communities all over the world celebrate joyous occasions such as births, Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, and holidays. It is traditional to give presents to loved ones for these types of occasions.
When looking for Jewish jewelry, there are a lot of options to choose from. Jewelry can come in the form of staple pieces or accessories. Staple pieces include necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and rings. All of these jewelry items make for great gifts for a variety of occasions. Jewelry is very well received as a gift for a birthday, anniversary, Bat Mitzvah, and more.
One of the more popular jewelry items is a ring. Rings can come in a multitude of styles and some have more specific Jewish themes. Jewish rings can feature a Star of David, Hebrew text, and Chai symbol.
Star of David
The Star of David, or Magen David is a hexagram shaped star that has come to represent the Jewish community in modern times. The Magen David symbol can be found in old Siddur prayer books and synagogues. Today, the star of David is featured on the Israeli state flag.
The Star of David symbol is commonly featured on rings as a border design. The star can be seen in gold and silver colors.
It is common for many rings to feature Hebrew text from a prayer or song. Popular Hebrew texts include Ani B'Koach, Ani L'Dodi, and the Shema prayer. Ani B'Koach is a mystical prayer sung on Shabbat that mentions the 42 letter name of G-d. A ring with this blessing would be a wonderful Bar Mitzvah gift.
Ani L'Dodi is a quote from the Song of Songs and was written by King Solomon. The song declares love for G-d and the Hebrew translates to 'I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.' This quote is written on many gifts for Jewish weddings, so this ring would be a great gift for a bride or groom.
The line of the Shema prayer is often featured on Jewish jewelry. The Hebrew translates to "Hear O Israel: the Lord is our G-d, the Lord is one." This prayer declares belief in one Jewish G-d. A ring with the Shema is a great Bar or Bat Mitzvah gift.
Materials & Options
Ring materials can range from stainless steel to 925 sterling silver and 14 Karat gold.
Rings can be sold individually and personalized with Hebrew or English engravings. Some rings may also be sold in bulk in ten to fifty pieces, which are ideal as give away items for gift bags. It is a common tradition to hand out gift bags at Jewish occasions such as Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
Some rings have a unique spinning feature where the inside of the ring can spin and the border of the ring stays in place. These rings make for great gifts.
