Sterling silver\white gold pendant, set with diamond and engraved "God Bless You".
The front side is set with diamond in a Magen-David icon. The diamond possesses qualities of health as it is the hardest element in nature. This vivid quality is intensified by the engraving of the 6 edges star called the Shield of David that stands for protection and safety. On the other side there is an engraving of a sentence quoted from the High Priest blessings, saying that God will bless you and protect you. The combination of the three (Magen David, Diamonds, and the engraved verses) creates a powerful Talisman.
At the ancient times, the people of Israel used to receive blessings from the High Priest - the Cohen - who raised his hands and pray repeating 3 times this verse. It was conceived then as the best way to be heaped with Gods blesses. By the years, it became commonly used that parents are blessing their children using versions of these words, before they leave home, or when going for risky journey. Later it was customary to encrypt it as talismans to be kept closely for luck and protection.
Significance and talisman The icon known as the Shield of David, which is two triangles integrated together, symbolizes the integration of the Divine with the Earthy. The triangle which points upward, stands for the materialistic aspects of life, that strives to evolve into the spiritual, while the the other triangle, that points downward, stands for the qualities of the Divine which are seeking for the fulfillment through the materialization.
The first time the name "Magen David" mentioned as a blessing in the "TAlmod": "Baroch ata adonai magen david".
King David used this icon on the shield of his warriors as a talisman that wins battles, and by this had been associated with Judaism and as a sign for protection and strength.
