Kabbalah Jewelry Today & The Evolution of Red String Jewelry
There is a huge amount of Kabbalah jewelry available which have different representations. In 2014 there are some strong themes and not only do they make delightful and eye catching pieces which are very attractive to wear, but they are also protective and mystical through the strong support they can give. There is definitely still a strong focus on the red string, but these tent to now incorporate charms which can perform different functions. These might include the Star of David or the lucky eye, which is intended to counteract the effects of the evil eye much in the same way as the red string does itself.
Probably the next most popular symbols are actually the prayers said during the tying of the red string which are the Ana Bekoach and the Ben Porat prayers. These prayers can be found engraved on necklaces, brooches, pendants or in fact any larger item, which can be worn. These remind of and back up the strength of the Kabbalah prayers and ensure that their strength is continuous and maintained. They make beautiful and unusual jewelry items and support the trend of more fashionable chunky jewelry of the moment. Some of the bracelets while forged in silver, have integrated red string.
Two further popular symbols, often worn as a pendant on a chain or cord around the neck, are the Hamsa and Key. The Hamsa Hand is an open palm looking a little like a flower bud. It is a symbol of the protection from the evil eye much in the way that the red string is and is a very positive representation. It is sometimes worn in pairs of hands.
The Key is again a very strong symbol, but this time of prosperity and success, so is a slightly different focus on the traditional Kabbalah jewelry, but regularly used nonetheless.
