The Shema Yisrael, considered as one of the most important prayers in Judaism, is found on the parchment inside of mezuzah cases. This fantastic pendant reimagines the concept as a wearable piece of jewelry with the words of Shema Yisrael adorning the exterior.
• The intricate design of the hollow tubular body of the pendant is a marvelous display of expert filigree techniques.
• The 14K yellow gold Shema Yisrael scroll wraps around the 14K white gold mezuzah fashioned with a brick design reminiscent of the Western Wall.
• The use of two different types of gold adds to further highlight the complexity of its ornate design.
Wearing the mezuzah as a pendant metaphorically transforms the body into a “home” (for which it is traditionally associated with) that’s meant to be kept as a sacred space committed to following the tenets of Judaism.
