Rachel Brown Kabbalah Jewelry
Jewelry designer Rachel Brown has studied Kabbalah for the past 13 years, and through her work she is able to combine her passion for designing beautiful things with her spiritual path. Each of her pieces is engraved with Kabbalistic meditations written in Aramaic letters, meant to bring blessings, health, love, and prosperity to the wearer. Rachel's core collection is composed of sterling silver lightly-plated with 24-karat gold. Her necklaces, bracelets, and rings, as they wear with age, begin to look antique, reflecting the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah. Rachel's Kabbalah-inspired jewelry collection has attracted celebrities, including iconic fashion designer Donna Karan, who was photographed wearing Rachel's signature bronze 72 Names of God cuff.
