The red string is a thin scarlet or crimson string - a type of talisman. It is a popular Jewish custom which is

Most people do not know where the red string came from but usually wear the red string just because it is fashionable. But it is an instrument of great mystical power and it holds great virtues as well as being fashionable.

    It is advisable not to remove the bracelet as it is believed that the very minute you remove the bracelet there will be a negative energy that will strike you.

    Yamaka; The Reason Behind It’s Use

    The Yamaka is a small skull cap that is generally worn by Jewish men. It is also known as Kippah, Yarmulka, Yarmulke, etc. The word Yamaka comes from Aramaic, which means; “fear of God’’. There are different reasons behind the use of the Kippah though it all comes down to reasons linked to religion. The Yamaka is a brimless cap that is usually made from clothes, crotchets, suede, black velvet or satin - depending on the type of group wearing the Kippah. They are worn by Jews to fulfill the customary requirement held by orthodox authorities that the head must be covered while some groups do have a specific style that they wear.

    There are different patterns and design on the Yarmulke. As long as its design isn’t offensive to the Jewish faith, most groups are fine with these caps featuring all kinds of fun and playful designs. That means they can have anything from the Star of David to a train on them. Kippahs with smiley faces and sports logos are also very popular. And instead of the standard smaller size of a kippah, a few groups wear a larger white crocheted skull cap that fully covers the head.

    The major reason why Jewish men wear this cap is because those that are part of orthodox group adhere to the law which requires them to keep their head covered at all times. This is actually the reason why it’s popular to see men wearing this skull cap as they go about their usual activities.

    A Jewish may also use the Yarmulke simply because he is part of a Reform or Conservative community. It is expected to wear a Kippah while he is in the synagogue or taking part in a prayer session. Most synagogues and Jewish funeral services keep a ready supply of kippot, this is why anyone from a celebrity to a plumber may wear a yamaka on occasion, but may not use it as part of a usual outfit.

    People interpret things differently and view things in a different way and this is why there is a little variance in the use of the skull cap. Some groups within Judaism believe that their texts explicitly say that their heads should be covered at all times while others believe that they can follow all necessary requirements by simply wearing their caps during the specific situations discussed above. The Talmud states “cover your head in order that the fear of heaven may be upon you’’.

    Several secular laws have been passed about people wearing the kippot. Primarily, these laws are in regards to members of the military, prisoners and public school teachers. Goldman v. Weinberger, the Religious Apparel Amendment, and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are some of the most important cases and acts related to this issue.

    Does Gold Tarnish Over Time?

    Gold tarnishing is evident as a dark discoloration of the gold item and is the slight corrosion of the gold surface, also called a tarnish film. It’s a confusion so as to specifically come to a conclusion in regarding the question of that whether real gold tarnishes or whether real gold does not tarnish. So it is important to figure out which one is correct.

    Gold can be considered as a least reactive chemical element. When gold is taken alone or when it is pure, it does not tarnish or rust and stays shiny because it does not combine easily with oxygen. Altering its properties, pure gold is alloyed with other base metals, as pure gold or 24 karat gold is too soft to be used in jewelry. In common it is rare to find a piece which contains only the pure gold there. When gold is alloyed with other base metals, those base metals with oxygen eventually tarnish the gold jewelries as they react with or to oxygen, moisture and sulfur.

    Does Gold Tarnish Over Time

    24 karat gold does not tarnish because it is less likely to tarnish when karat of the gold increases. In general, tarnishing is mostly seen in gold with lower karat values and usually seen in gold which is less than 14 karat. Very seldom tarnishing can be observed in 18 karat gold where as little tarnishing can be there in 14 karat gold.

    We can recognize that, it is not pure gold or 24 karat gold when they tarnish, but not that those aren’t real gold. When considering about jewelries made out of gold, some people’s jewelry tarnish more quickly or may be more inclined to tarnish than other people because the body chemistry differs from person to person. It is less likely that the gold piece will tarnish, when higher the percentage of gold in the alloy. There as very rare circumstances in which gold with high karat values subjected to tarnishing as well. Than sterling silver, it does so in a much slower phase when lower karat gold tarnishes.

    Periodic cleaning needed for gold jewelry and other items less than 14 karat which uses copper and silver. Factors like cleaning agents, perfumes and perspiration causes this kind gold to tarnish.

    Does 14 karat gold tarnish, why does gold tarnish? That is one important question which emphasizes from the above facts .When we answer those questions by summarizing the content, actually pure gold does not tarnish. But pure gold is not enough to be used alone as it is in jewelry. As mentioned above, it is those base metals like platinum, silver and zinc etc. which are combined with gold, is what tarnishes the jewelry. Usually items with 14 karat gold are less likely to see any tarnishing.

    We can take preventive steps by looking at our jewelries and there are ample ways of treating tarnished gold. As an example way to remove surface tarnishing of gold, wiping the tarnished part with a mixture (adding a few drops of mild and then adding a non-phosphate dishwashing liquid into warm water) using the fingers or a cotton swab can be done. Also we can bring our jewelry to a trusted jeweler to make the piece thoroughly cleaned by an expert, if the gold jewelry eventually looks dull after a long time of use.
