Silver jewelry is ever so popular and its popularity has not waned for thousands of years. In Exodus, the Children of Israel are described as offering their silver jewelry and possessions of gold for use in the building of the Holy Tabernacle.
In later civilizations silver that was mined in Spain was used by the Romans for currency and jewelry. The use of silver by the Romans helped to spread this precious metal throughout their conquered territories in Europe and Asia. It wasn’t long before artisans on every continent began using this shiny and beautiful metal in the manufacture of special jewelry creations. The attraction to silver jewelry has only grown throughout the ages.
The Jews of Yemen were known as artisans who created one of a kind silver jewelry and decorations for Torah covers. Their work involved intricate details and hammered filigree in their designs. With the creation of the State of Israel, the immigration of the Yemenite Jews to the Holy Land helped to introduce a new flavor in jewelry design whose demand grew constantly. Unique silver jewelry, Mezuzah cases, and Judaica products were purchased by tourists visiting Israel and later seen by new consumers who wanted their own silver jewelry and other silver products that were hand made in Israel.
Israel, the Holy Land, is now much closer to overseas markets and consumers of silver jewelry than ever before. The Internet makes it simple and secure to buy Israeli made silver products through online Israeli shopping sites. Direct shipping of these products ensures their arrival to your home or office.
If you are looking for a unique and hand made silver jewelry creation, something with personal meaning that will attract attention for its beauty, than you owe it to yourself or loved one to buy quality Israeli made silver jewelry from the Holy Land.
