The Star of David, the enduring Jewish symbol that adorns the flag of the State of Israel, is undoubtedly the most common symbol associated with the Jewish faith. Also called the "Jewish Star," "Magen David," or "Shield of David,” this six pointed star is said to have adorned the shield of the Israelite King David, though its actual origins are not certain. Jewelry Judaica features an extensive collection of Star of David jewelry, both traditional and contemporary. Unsurprisingly, the Jewish Star is our most abundant and popular motif.

Symbols are and have always been at the core of the many faiths of the world. These symbols often represent core tenets or teachings of the religion. Often, one symbol stands out in each faith that comes to universally represent that faith as a whole. For Islam, it is the Star and Crescent, for Christianity it is the Cross, for Buddhism it is the Wheel of Dharma, and for Hinduism, it is the Om. For Judaism, it is the Star of David.
While the Judaism is rich with symbolism, the Star of David is undoubtedly the most common and well-recognized symbol associated with the Jewish faith and people. So synonymous is the Star of David with the Jewish people, that the State of Israel, the only Jewish state in the world, chose the Star of David to adorn its national flag. However, it may surprise people to learn that the Star of David is a relatively new symbol of the Jewish faith, perhaps only a few hundred years old. It is also a symbol shrouded in mystery and mysticism.
The Star of David goes by another name, “Magen David,” or “Shield of David.” Lore has it that King David, the warrior king of Israel, had the geometric motif of two interwoven triangles that formed a six-pointed star on his battle shield. However, there is no real historical evidence to suggest this was the actual shape or design of David’s shield.
Historically, there is some evidence that the six-pointed was used as a Jewish religious symbol as far back as the 11th century, although the ornamental use of the hexagon shape was used by Jewish communities before that. Common use of the Star of David as a symbol of the Jewish faith began around the 17h century when it was to mark the outside of synagogues in a similar fashion to how crosses identified churches. The star was later adopted and popularized by the founders of the Zionist movement. Of course, the Nazis used the symbol to mark and persecute Jews. The Star of David would only become the universal symbol of Judaism in the 20th century.
There is also theologically inspired significance to the shape. Two interwoven triangles also make seven smaller shapes. The number seven is the foundational number of creation. Kabbalah describes the six-pointed star as containing seven divine attributes, or “sefirot” of divine emotion. They are: Chesed - "Kindness," Gevurah - "Severity," Tiferet - "Beauty," Netzach - "Eternity," Hod - "Splendour," Yesod - "Foundation," and Malchut - "Kingship."
Today, Jews around the world use the symbol proudly. It adorns synagogues, prayer books, mezuzahs, prayer shawls, kippot, and even graves. Of course, the Star of David also looks great around the neck, on the ears, or around the wrist.
