This too shall pass bracelet - Sterling Silver
גם זה יעבור
A phrase occurring in a Jewish folk wisdom.
It is said that King Solomon was feeling blue so he asked his advisers to find him a ring he had seen in a dream.
"When I feel satisfied I’m afraid that it won’t last. And when I don’t, I am afraid my sorrow will go on forever. Find me the ring that will ease my suffering." Eventually an adviser met an old jeweler who carved into a simple gold band the Hebrew inscription "gam zeh ya’avor" – "this too shall pass." The adviser said, "Wear this ring always. Whatever happens, before you call it good or bad, touch this ring and read the inscription. That way, you will always be at peace." When the king received his ring and read the inscription his sorrows turned to joy and his joy to sorrows, and then both gave way to equanimity.
(I'll include a little card with this story with your purchase.)
So rather than a ring, I present a bracelet...easier to read and will fit most medium to smaller women's wrists.
Hand stamped solid sterling silver, the rectangular wire is narrow, yet sturdy and has a nice weight to it, measuring 4mm wide (just over 1/8 inch) by 2 mm thick. 6 1/8" long with a 3/4" opening.
This listing is for ONE bracelet.
It can be bent a bit to adjust smaller or larger. Once you have it adjusted to fit you as you like, gently slip the bracelet on or off at the soft thin area of your arm about an inch and a half down from your hand. Do this, and it'll last forever!
Oxidized and satin finished to help the writing pop.
Simple and sweet...and very comfortable.
The inside is stamped STONZ and .925 and sterling
