This magnificent silver covered necklace is uniquely designed and shaped as the legendary King David Shield, with the star of David adorned with a diamond-like blue stone. The Star of David or Shield of David (Magen David in Hebrew) is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism. It is named after King David of ancient Israel; and its earliest known communal usage began in the Middle Ages, alongside the more ancient symbol of the menorah. Geometrically it is the hexagram. With the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 the Star of David on the Flag of Israel has also become a symbol of Israel. The symbol is also associated with the Zionism movement. This unique necklace with the kabbalistic power of the "Magen David" is affordable than ever as a true gift for your relatives, friends and for yourself.
