Silver Hoshen Ring with Gemstones
925 Sterling Silver
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 filled with twelve faceted cubic zirconia gemstones, in colors that represent the twelve stones on the Hoshen Mishpat. 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 on 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, Aquamarine. Today, the elegant design of the Hoshen makes a beautiful decorative motif throughout Jewish art and jewelry.
