The different Jewish bracelets and their meaning
There is a wide variety of Jewish bracelets. To help you choose your Jewish bracelet, we give you the meaning of the different bracelets and symbols that you can find in our collection.
The red string bracelet
The red thread bracelet is a method of protection revealed by the kabbalists. This method involves wearing a red woolen thread on the left wrist for 28 days - a lunar cycle. This helps to ward off the evil eye and to protect oneself on a physical and spiritual level.
To enhance its protective energy, each ball of red yarn should be wrapped around Rachel's tombstone in Israel. During this ritual, it is important to recite specific prayers in Hebrew. This is what makes the red thread an authentic bracelet.
At O-Judaisme, we guarantee the authenticity of each of our red threads imported from Israel.
The Hamsa Wristband
The Hamsa is a hand that symbolizes protection against evil. It is a very ancient religious symbol. Over the centuries, the Hamsa has been found in different religions and cultures and has taken on different forms and meanings. Also called Fatima's hand or Myriam's hand, it is considered a very powerful symbol by Jews, Christians and Muslims. Many people wear it as a lucky charm, or to protect themselves from evil spirits.
The Star of David Bracelet
The tradition of the Star of David as a Jewish bracelet is quite old. The symbol itself has been reused many times over the centuries. It is also called "the Seal of Solomon" or "Magen David" by Kabbalists. This is probably due to the fact that the geometric figure is composed of triangles inscribed in a circle. You understood, its use can be double. You can wear it on your wrist as a symbol of belonging to the Jewish faith and culture, or as kabbalistic jewelry for protection and success.
Protective eye bracelet
For many centuries, we find the symbol of the eye in the Mediterranean and more particularly in Turkey. Made of blue glass, it is used in the form of jewelry but also as decoration in homes. Also called “Nazar Boncuk” or “Greek eye” its main role is to protect from the curse of the evil eye which is brought on by envious looks. The symbol has evolved a lot over time and is an integral part of Jewish popular culture. It is now offered by artisan jewelers in different shapes and colors, making it a real fashion accessory that can be worn as earrings, necklaces or bracelets.
