This superbly crafted sterling silver ring will be a treasured heirloom for generations! It is not only very beautiful, but also filled with real meaning and depth.
The sterling silver body is engraved with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. It is covered with a 9k gold plate containing twelve genuine gemstones, including a real diamond, representing the twelve stones on the Hoshen, the Jewish High Priest's breastplate from the days of Jerusalem's Holy Temple. What a great piece!
The Hoshen Mishpat was the breastplate worn by the Jewish High Priest in the days of Jerusalem’s Holy Temple. There were 12 precious stones in the Hoshen, as mentioned in Book of Exodus (28:15-30), representing the twelve tribes of Israel: Ruby, Garnet, Citrine, Blue Topaz, Topaz, Sapphire, Peridot, Onyx, Emerald, Diamond, Amethyst and Aquamarine. Today, the elegant design of the Hoshen makes a beautiful decorative motif throughout Jewish art and jewelry.
