Inscribed in Hebrew on the obverse of this amuletic pendant is the world "Shaddai", the Almighty amidst a floral design. On the reverse are the opening words of the verses written in the phylacteries and mezuzot: "Here O Israel the Lord our God the Lord is One"  (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).

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.

This item comes with a lovely sterling silver snake chain in your choice of length.

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem together with a description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
