What is your stand about this claim? "Fashion trends reflect a new found sense of pride in religion, its practice and Judaica jewelry, which has become the leader in the expression of this trend"

Personally I am not seeing it. I get less and less orders for Judaica. Right now I am seeing a lot of the long layered and chunky.

Long time I lived in Azerbaijan. Hamsa jewelry is very popular among Muslim population.

I myself would like to have Anabek Prayer Wheel. I believe in its power.

Is there something inside of it? Looks like I should be able to make one easily enough, but I can only base that on what I see in the picture (I am a jeweler).

Hmm. If it clicks into place it must be spring loaded. I think I need to figure this out. Thanks Pinchas.

Else... The inner wheel is a wheel of prophecy. So the letters on it must be located very exactly.

I have to say... I'm skeptical. The gemara says prophecy comes from Prophets... after they ceased it went to the Urim V'Turim on the Kohen Gadol's breastplate... after the destruction of the temple it went to childern... not amulets. So while it does look very cool I'm skeptical about it being any more magical than a "magic 8 ball."

Such jewelry isn't worn by The Torah True. We have enough reminders of our Heritage. I see that most of the Jewish jewelry is bought by Reformed/Conservative/Reconstruct ionist.

The urim and thummin along with the gems representing the twelve tribes of Israel, placed the children first. That is the way the high priest's breastplate is designed. The children are represented at the forefront.

When king Saul made the men take an oath not to eat that day, until he had been avenged from the philistines. King Saul placed himself first and foremost, over his men and his son. That is why God did not answer him by urim and thummin that day. Saul ended up even threatening the life of Jonathan that day. Saul did recieve his answer on that front, when they casted lots.

When God gave Solomon a request to be granted. Solomon asked for wisdom to lead the people. The Urim and Thummin are no longer mentioned.

Thank you... but where is the Jewish source for any sort of prophetic jewelry?

I was just explaining the Urim and Thummin. I agree with you about the jewelry mentioned, it seems like one of those ,how do you spell it "ouji boards".

Not true at all. In any community I have ever lived in every frum girl had at least one magen david, generally their name in Hebrew on a chain, and most often the rings that look like the stones of the kotel with a name on them. The wheel above is not common, but judaica in general certainly is.

If you have seen it then I defer to you but I personally do not see it much.
