Amulet-Pendant, Heart Shape with Star of David
Replica of a pendant from Eretz-Israel, 19th century
The heart shape, like the leaf, is common in amuletic pendants, and the Star of David – two interlaced triangles creating a six-pointed star – is a magical symbol of great antiquity. The word Shaddai (the Almighty) at the center of the Star of David is one of the names of God. A loop for hanging is attached to the top of the silver pendant.
This beautiful and delicate piece, suitable for any age and gender, is sure to make an exciting addition to your jewelry collection.
Did You Know? The use of amulets dates from ancient times and continues to this day. Amulets were intended to protect the wearer, his family, and his possessions from natural disasters, spells, and the evil eye. Some were thought to bear healing properties or aid fertility; others protected the wearer on his travels, conferred blessings and good fortune, or elicited the good will and love of others. The magical power attributed to Jewish amulets stems from the versions of God’s name or Biblical verses inscribed on them. For extra protection, the name of the wearer was sometimes added.SHOW MORE
