Hoshen Ring in Sterling Silver
This captivating ring showcases a gorgeous, raised square with 12 gemstones, reminiscent of the Kohen HaGadol's priestly breastplate. Each stone stands for the 12 tribes of Israel.
The Hoshen or Priestly breastplate was a sacred piece worn by the Kohen HaGadol- High Priest. The twelve jewels embedded onto the breastplate were to be made from specific minerals, none of them the same as the other, and each representative of the 12 tribes of Israel. According to Rabbinic tradition, the names of the tribes were engraved onto the stones with Naxian/emery stone. Each stone stands for certain qualities and powers and creates a powerful tool together, besides having a magnificent and lavish appearance.
This will make a lovely gift on any occasion.
