For the Jewish man who wants a way to display a symbol of his faith on a daily basis, or even just to wear on special occasions, then mens hamsa jewelry is an easy way to do so. Mens Jewish jewelry is available in a variety of designs and styles, and can range in price from very inexpensive, to very expensive depending on the style, design, and materials used. We are all different and have our own personal tastes.
A Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet which is popular through the Middle East and North Africa, and is commonly used for jewelry and wall hangings. It shows an open right hand, which is a sign that is recognized as a sign of protection. It is superstitiously believed to ward away the ‘evil eye’. Many men’s Jewish jewelry pieces feature this very popular design. It is worn as a good luck charm and is a very popular choice for men’s hamsa jewelry.
Another popular choice for male jewelry is the Star of David. This is the most popular of all jewelry symbols for both Jewish men and Jewish women. Many followers of the Jewish religion wear these necklaces on a regular basis. It is akin to Christian’s wearing a cross as a symbol of their religion. For women, the choices available in the purchasing of a Star of David necklace are many. These beautiful necklaces can be found with delicate, detailed filigree designs etched into them, and can also be encrusted in diamonds or Swarkoski crystals. Women can purchase Star of David necklaces, earrings, rings, and pendants. Star of David necklaces can also be purchased for children as young as babies, as well as older children that want to wear something that is meaningful to them and their culture. Star of David necklaces can be found on silver or gold chains, or even on leather rope necklaces to make them a little more durable.
A third very popular design, after mens hamsa jewelry, is that of the red string. In Kabbalah, which is the mystical branch of Jewish belief, the string is believed to help ward away the evil eye (in the same way the Hamsa is believed to). The “evil eye” is described as “the unfriendly stares and unkind glances we sometimes get from people around us,” and many Jewish men and women believe that wearing jewelry to ward off these evil spirits will make them stronger.
All of these choices are great ways to display your faith, and are all beautiful, timeless pieces. Most jewelry stores do not carry a big line of judaica jewelry; many do not carry any pieces at all. For the purchasing of these types of jewelry items, and any Judaic jewelry, buying online may be the easiest route for you. Online Judaic web sites provide large lines of jewelry, home furnishings, wall decorations, children’s religious items, and religious items for synagogue services.’ They carry a wide variety of beautiful necklaces, bracelets, pendants and many other types of jewelry including Hamsa jewelry items.
