Obviously, a piece of Jewish jewelry can serve as a statement of faith; however, it can also serve as a symbol of love! Check out these four pieces that communicate both your commitment to your Creator and to your significant other.
The Mizpah Break Apart Pendant in 14K Gold provides a continual reminder that God is watching over you and the one you love, even when you must be apart. When both pieces are present, the inscription “The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent from one another” can be clearly read. These words originally applied to Jacob and Laban thousands of years ago, and to this day they serve as a reminder of God’s presence with both you and the one you love. Keep one half for yourself and give the other to someone who’s close to your heart regardless of the distance that separates you.
Jewish wedding bands allow you to incorporate a message of faith and heritage into the timeless symbol of lifelong love and commitment. For instance, the “I am Beloved’s and My Beloved is Mine” Wedding Band, 14K White Gold uses a verse from the Song of Solomon to celebrate that you and your spouse belong to one another and that your love is a gift from God. This verse is written in graceful script on a sleek, flat 14K white gold band, creating an elegant emblem of your bond. This modern, meaningful ring is available in three widths, allowing you to choose one that’s perfect for your finger. And, if you’d prefer, you can select a different verse from Apples of Gold’s list or opt for a personal favorite.
The “I am My Beloved’s” Wedding Band in 14K White Gold provides a bolder take on Song of Solomon, laser-inscribing half of Song of Solomon 6:3 on the outside of the band in simple, striking capital letters, and completing the verse on the inside surface. In addition to serving as a unique and meaningful wedding band, this smooth, flat ring is also an excellent pick as a purity ring or a stand-alone piece.
The Star of David Shema Ring in 14K White Gold a could also serve one of several purposes; regardless of what finger you wear it on, it provides a striking statement of faith. A Star of David is laser-inscribed front and center on this piece, providing a simple, straight forward message, while words from the Shema (“Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One”) are inscribed in both English and Hebrew on the inside. These words serve as a continual confession of faith and calls to mind the command that immediately follows them: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.” This shining band is polished to a high shine, creating a look that speaks of class, as well as of the beliefs to which you hold.
Whether you choose a unique pendant or one of Apples of Gold’s Jewish rings, Jewish jewelry can serve two purposes. Try one of these pieces for an expression of both faith and love.
