Chai Sterling Silver Jewish Jewelry

The ancient process known as 'gematria' assigns numeric values to the Hebrew alphabet so that each word is attributed to a number as depicted in one of the silver necklaces. 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.  This piece of Judaica jewelry is a great gift anytime. offers Free Standard Shipping within the United States for orders $100.00 and over.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
