Chai Necklace in Sterling Silver or 14K Gold

T. S. Brown Jewelry

This necklace is inscribed on the front with the letters for the word 'life' or 'Chai' in Hebrew.  Inscribed with '18' on the back, which is the numerical value for the word life in the Jewish religion.

The ancient process known as 'gematria' assigns numeric values to the Hebrew alphabet so that each word is attributed to a number. Eighteen is the sum of the letters in 'Chai', making it the numerical value of the word 'life' in Hebrew. Gifts are often made in denominations of eighteen for this reason. 'Chai' has a special meaning in Jewish culture and religion, 'L'chayim' being the common blessing or toast, 'to life'.  Giving this symbol conveys your best wishes to the recipient to have a long and full life.

The pendant is 3/4" wide.  A sterling silver 18" chain is included.

Made in the USA.

All designs are gift boxed.  Story cards are included that provide detail about the history behind each piece.
