Silver Covered Star of David with Hamsa Adorned with Blue Diamond-like Stone. The Star of David or Shield of David 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. 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. The Hamsa hand is a symbol used in amulets, charms and jewelry to protect against the "evil eye." This gift contains both biblical and Kabbalistic symbols that make this uniquely designed jewelry one of the most powerful necklace ever produced.
