925 Sterling silverSize: 1.6" X 2" / 4 X 5 cm
Pendant / Brooch
This silver amulet is special for two reasons: it is the oldest known amulet bearing these biblical verses, and it was designed to be seen, not concealed, just like a piece of jewelry. The leaf-shaped pendant is incised on one side with the first four verses of Shema (“Hear O Israel”; Deuteronomy 6:4-7). The first of these is interwined with the first verse of Psalm 91, and the last is followed by Proverbs 18:10. These biblical verses appear on other amulets and in incantations, but the manner in which they are combined here is unique.
A sterling silver chain or black silicone cord in your choice of length are available for an additional fee.
