‘Twelve Tribes of Israel’ Cufflink Collection
Placed in the centre of a yellow matte rhodium-plated base of silver cufflinks is the star of David, cast and coated with glossy rhodium. The Magen David or Shield of David is an ancient emblem shaped as a six-pointed star, which, as the legend goes, used to adorn the shields of King David’s warriors. Engraved on the back of the cufflink disc is a quote from the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 6:4) written in Hebrew, while the translation is featured on the edge of the cufflink: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one”. Both inscriptions are carved using a special technique of deep engraving on silver.
