Leather Bracelet with Hoshen Stones & Gold
Lustrous and detailed, this colorful bracelet boasts the 12 Hoshen stones and a lovely combination of gold, sterling silver and leather, arresting the eye immediately.
This beautiful sterling silver bracelet is encrusted with Hoshen stones and the side is engraved with the words 'Avnei Hoshen', meaning Hoshen stones. Surrounding stones is a touch of gold and small silver nuggets with leather straps linked to them. 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.
