Nowhere else is quite like Jerusalem.
There are many reasons for that, but a big part of it is the feeling you get when you are in the city- or even when you think about the city.
It is unsurprising then how difficult it is to find a souvenir or gift to take from the Holy Land that does it justice and truly represents its spiritual and emotional power.
Run-of-the-mill trinkets and tokens do not embody the heritage, history, and essence of Jerusalem, and they don’t hold a deep connection to its heart.
Gems of Jerusalem is different. Creating tailored gifts and household items using the same stone that built the city makes it possible to take a piece of Jerusalem with you and keep it in your home forever.
Jerusalem stone is one of the most instantly recognizable materials for anyone who knows the Holy Land, but what makes it such a good choice for Jerusalem souvenirs and gifts? Here is all you need to know.
About Jerusalem Stone
What is Jerusalem stone? In short, it is a vital material used in the construction of traditional Jerusalem architecture and has been for millennia. It comes from quarries surrounding the city, where it has been mined since ancient times.
The stone is highly distinctive thanks to its pale color with a subtle reddish-orange hue mottled through. It is what gives the city its ambient and instantly recognizable warmth.
Whenever you think of Jerusalem, the image of strong, powerful walls and bold, ancient architecture comes to mind. It is a defining characteristic of the city, and it is all thanks to Jerusalem stone.
What Makes These Products Different from Other Jerusalem Souvenirs?
Gift a Piece of Jerusalem
Jerusalem is a feeling, not just a place. The stone architecture is an integral part of that feeling and is as much part of the city’s heritage as the people and their history.
To replicate that elsewhere is impossible, but you can use the city itself to take it with you.
Gems of Jerusalem use the very same stone that runs through the city and expertly crafts it into unique, stunning gifts from the Holy Land. When you give someone this gift, you are giving them a piece of Jerusalem itself- literally and figuratively.
Take Home the Heart of the Holy Land
In pictures of Jerusalem’s defining architecture throughout history, the unique reddish hue is unmistakable. This stone comes from the heart of Israel and is the lifeblood that runs through the foundations and structures of Jerusalem itself.
There is no other way to achieve the same gifting experience if you want to share that emotional connection with a loved one.
Even a small part of Jerusalem can bring a new aura and sense of spirituality into a home- especially a small part made of stone that came from the heart of the Holy Land.
Choose Authentic Israel Souvenirs that Mean Something
Jerusalem is unlike any other place on earth, so it is an injustice to choose a generic souvenir that could have been made anywhere. Even traditional tourist trinkets often lack any deep connection to the real Jerusalem, and they carry little meaning other than ‘I went to this place.’
Instead of spending money on something that will sit in a drawer or gather dust in a cupboard, pick a piece that has meaning and represents something deeper.
Whether it is for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, a piece crafted from Jerusalem stone is a connection to the Holy Land- evocative of the same spirit of the city. To have a piece of Jerusalem with you always means something- and it shows whoever you give it to that they mean something to you.
