When referring to Jewish Jewelry there is much more than just a Hamsa Pendant or a Star of David Pendant.

There is a special obligation of beautifying mitzvoth to prove we enjoy fulfilling the mitzvoth, it is especially felt when referring to the Talit, some add silver squares to beautify it others turn to Jewish Jewelry so they can fulfill this commandments.

The Talit is a four cornered garment made in all sizes to fit anyone interested in wearing this traditional garment, at each of the four corners there Is a hole through which four wool strings are thread and folded in half to create eight strings.  These eight strings together with the five knots made at the top of the strings represent the 613 Mitzvoth commandments the Jewish nation is obligated to keep, this is one of the reasons the Talit is worn every day so it will remind the Jewish person wearing it of all the laws he is obliged to.

The Mitzvah of the Talit Clips
