Since long, Christian jewelry from Jerusalem stirred the hearts of Christians.
Spiritual jewelry in the shape of religious symbols such as the heart pendant, tree of life necklace, heart-shaped diamond engagement ring, Christian symbols’ cross, dove necklace, Star of Bethlehem jewelry and others might hold more meaning when obtained from the land of their origin.
But there is more to it than just geography. One Jerusalem jewelry maker has realized that people wish to connect on a deeper level. After the excavation project of 1999, Moriah jewelry store whose main branch is in the Old City of Jerusalem, had received special permission to use 3000-year-old stones to create history in the world of jewelry. That’s when real Jerusalem stone jewelry came about.
Strong factual and metaphorical implications of the Biblical stories tie us all, humans, into one bundle. However, every group of people belonging to a specific path of faith relates the strongest to the symbols that are part of it.
In the old days, the use of symbols, acts, artworks and events expressing Christian ideas used to be understood only by those initiated. However, things have changed since.
Moriah’s Christian jewelry from Jerusalem is heavily based on Christian symbolism.
It is enough just to have a look at their Eva collection whose name derives from the word ‘Evangelical’. Brought to life by skillful Israeli jewelry artists through original Jerusalem stone, gold, and diamonds, it moves and impresses people around the globe with Moriah’s shops reaching far and wide.
Christian Jewelry From Jerusalem: Heart Pendant
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10 | NIV |
All of us are familiar with the heart symbol. It is probably near impossible to find a jewelry store that doesn’t have a piece featuring the heart. There is a reason for that: it is, after all, the ultimate sign of affection, feelings and romantic love.
The word ‘heart’ is pronounced ‘levav’ in archaic Hebrew and appears more than a thousand times in the Bible, making it the most prevalent anthropological term in the Holy Scriptures.
When choosing a piece of spiritual jewelry from Jerusalem for your nearest and dearest, only imagine the depth of meaning this gift will bear if the heart pendant is crafted out of original stone that has come a full circle from biblical times into ours. That’s a kind of a time machine.
Through most fortunate occurrence of serendipity, we can now hold in our hands the very ground on which young Christianity stepped.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10 ESV)
A true believer whose heart and mind are open to the spirit residing in ancient stones will feel their heart flutter like butterfly’s wings approaching the flower’s luscious nectar. The rock that lay dormant for three thousand years is now revoked and incorporated into moving pieces of jeweled art of Christian symbolism.
Moriah Jewelry collection’s items of Christian jewelry from Jerusalem, such as the heart pendant, star of Bethlehem or the dove necklace allow you to touch and feel the actual ground Jesus walked. The ancient rock of Jerusalem is now an inherent part, a central piece of the elements participating in the creation of Moriah’s Jerusalem stone jewelry collections.
Much like the four primary elements – fire, air, wind, and earth, – here the players are:
- A natural Jerusalem stone from 3000 years ago
- The precious metal gold of which there is also a rose gold and a white gold
- Diamonds, which is the strongest of precious stones
- The artist
A spirit unites all of these elements; that is why Moriah’s jewelry invariably strikes a chord with anyone who visits the shops.
Jerusalem Stone Jewelry
An artist is a person of vision. A true artist, whether religious or not, is deeply connected in their heart to the meaning of what they are working on and what they have created. Their hearts must be in the right place. A jewelry artist has to feel connected if they want their masterpiece to touch and move people, and isn’t it true that masterpieces do to us precisely that?
Take for example the prominent Jerusalem-born-and-bred jewelry artist Avi Tavisal. This humble man is one of the most famous jewelry designers in Israel, and for a good reason. His Jerusalem stone jewelry isn’t necessarily the shiniest, but surely you are familiar with the saying “all that glitters is not gold.”
Avi Tavisal of Moriah Jewelry from Jerusalem and Judaica is a true artist, a man of vision. It is worth visiting his shop, whether in the Old City of Jerusalem or one of the branches in Israel or abroad, to see the work first-hand and to hear the unique story of how he had discovered his promised land in the field of handcrafted jewelry.
He and other Israeli jewelry artists who work with him are creating stunning spiritual jewelry that stands out from anything you might’ve seen so far as well as the test of time. A lot of the creation connects deeply with Christian symbolism, bringing it forth through a unique combination of old and new, polished and raw.
As in 1 Corinthians 15:21 | NIV |
“For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.”
Since Moriah collections are using original ancient Jerusalem stone found in the excavations, the number of pieces is limited. Once the stone supply runs out, never again such jewelry can be made. It is as if the time spiral has completed a 3000-year loop and we are now lucky enough to witness it. Those of us who will purchase jewelry made of Jerusalem stone will be the joyous owners of an extraordinary relic of Christian history resurrected into modern life.
Jerusalem stone jewelry of Moriah Jewelry collections are all, in fact, limited edition.
These unique objects of new mastery making use of ancient material do deserve to be seen in high settings since they are the work of real and rare craftsmanship.
Only imagine the reaction of your dear ones when you gift them such a stunning masterpiece.
Having a piece of Christian jewelry made in Jerusalem out of original Jerusalem stone allows one to experience symbolism on a new level. It unites visual with factual, the meaning of a shape with a story of the material from which it is made, presenting us with a unique opportunity to connect to history free of limits of time or space.
