Multi-faceted brilliance! This Glory David Star is an absolutely spectacular find in Jewish Jewelry--truly a unique and enigmatic piece. Expertly crafted in sterling silver with an abundance of imagination, this Star of David pendant is Jewish Silver Jewelry at its very finest. I like this piece a lot! What sets it apart from other Jewish Jewelry is the precise and artistic layering of four separate Magens David, coupled with the contrasting texture of a bit of leather--What an ingenious fusion of materials! The chain is of the classic link variety and includes a magnetic closure.
This silver necklace is designed by YOYO32, which is the registered brand name of a magnificent and eclectic line of spiritual and symbolic Jewish Silver Jewelry created by the exceptional artist, Jorini. The Magen David debate continues--two Jews, three opinions, right? Franz Rosenzweig, the scholar, has noted that the top triangle points upward, toward G-d, while the lower triangle points downward, toward the material world. Others opine that the interlocking makes the triangles undividable, like the Jewish people. Some say that the three sides are indicative of the three types of Jews: Kohanim, Levites and Israeli. Some note that there are actually 12 sides (3 exterior and 3 interior), representing the 12 tribes. While these theories are interesting, they have little basis in historical fact. I'm glad we've got that settled!
