Silver Mezuzah - Leaf
The Italian art of silver and gold-smithing has been around for many generations. To truly be considered an artist, the skill must have been passed down from father to son. Starting from the age of ten a boy would help in the workshop preparing and interweaving the silver threads.
In Italy, a person who wanted a piece of jewelry would give five silver coins to the silversmith. Three coins were melted for the jewel itself and the two other coins were the jeweler's fee. After two days of preparing the silver into threads and small silver domes, the jewelry was crafted in another day. Till this day modern silversmiths use ancient methods to make jewelry, maybe more advanced that 500 years ago, but still very old.
With a modern perspective to its historic design, this stunning 925 handmade Sterling Silver Mezuzah displays a solid silver plate with exquisite filigree of a leaf and Sha-dai, one of the 10 holy names of G-D, to give you a true masterpiece.
Size: 3.5 inches.

Looks nice from a distance but the quality of the metalwork leaves something to be desired if you get up close. Purchased as a wedding gift. Shipping and service was painless.
I am quite pleased with the service, concern and product itself. My sales person was a delight to deal with and our new home now has some beautiful mezuzah s on the doorposts.
