Made in the USA. This Star of David is precision carved out of non-magnetic, non reactive, brite finished, 100% 304 stainless steel. The dimensions are: 1" tall x 1" wide x 3/32" thick. The chain is the beaded "dog tag" type, 24" long, and also made of the same stainless steel. The simplicity and clean lines of the design makes it stand out above the crowded field of otherwise gawdy castings, which are irregularly shaped and finished. It's tough, because it has to be! If you could only hold it in your hand and feel how solid it really is...in more than one way, it's built to never let you down.
The Star or Shield of David is universally recognized sign of Judaism and Jewish identity. It has however, only achieved this status in the last 200 years. Before that time, it was chiefly associated with magic. In our own day, its universal Jewish popularity, especially as the symbol of the State of Israel, has made the question of its origins moot.
