Israeli jewellery consists of pieces that are inspired by both Urban and Rural Israel. For example, many designs contain many Israeli influences such as the use of plants, landscapes, religious images, conflict and war, that are narrated in an abstract manner. Israeli jewellers are famous for their reflection of distinctive culture, holy places and amazing country. Popular motifs include the Anemone Coronaria, which is the national flower of Israel, Jerusalem and the Western Wall, as well as other national symbols like the Lion of Judah.
In the 1930s, Israeli Jewellery trends blended with the Western style, resulting in creative, unique design innovations. Due to immigration from Islamic countries, the exquisite, oriental craftsmanship of the Israeli people was preserved within these designs, whilst at the same time developing a new, refined style that expressed the National identity of Israel. Dedicated to their homeland, Israeli jewellery designers have had a lasting influence on the jewellery industry as a whole, and have begun to become internationally renowned. Today, the contemporary works and elegant feel of Israeli Jewellery is widely circulated in the global jewellery scene, and continues to grow in popularity!
If you have come across the wondrous works and creations of famous Israeli jewellery designers, then you are likely to have heard the phrase, ‘gold-filled jewellery.’ Many Israeli jewellers today prefer to craft gold-filled pieces, as opposed to selling ones that are made completely from gold. Just like gold-plated jewellery, gold-filled pieces are actually created from non-gold metals that are covered with a substantial layer which is composed of gold. Equally as beautiful, these pieces maintain an excellent customer base due to their affordability, unique structure and great quality.
Even with the same carat number, this form of Israeli jewellery is comparatively cheaper against its solid gold form. Most gold-filled Israeli pieces are comprised of 10-20 Carat gold, equating to the gold that has been wrapped around the core metal. To explain, if an Israeli piece was of 10 Carats, it simply means that the item consists of an outer layer which is 41.7% of the total metal content, the rest of which is composed of another metal or alloy.
