Cross of Divinity Diamond Pendant


Did you know birthstones have their origins in the bible?

Scholars trace the origin of birthstones back to the Breastplate of Aaron, as described in the Book of Exodus in the Bible. The Breastplate boasted 12 unique gemstones that represented the 12 tribes of Israel. It was a religious garment with specific symbolism regarding the tribes. To highlight the special attributes of each tribe, the gems were set in four rows of three.

In the Bible, the tribe of Gad is one of the twelve tribes of Israel, and is associated with the birthstone of April, diamond. The name "Gad" means "fortune" or "good luck," in Genesis 30:11 Leah says, 'What good fortune!' So she named him Gad,' when she gave birth to Gad.

The tribe of Gad was known for their skills as warriors and herdsmen. In Genesis 49:19, where Jacob blesses his sons before his death he prophesies 'Gad will be attacked by a band of raiders, but he will attack them at their heels.' Diamonds are known for its brilliance and durability, and symbolizes strength, courage, and prosperity.

In the Bible, diamonds are a sign of beauty and wealth, with the splendor of kings and queens. Diamond represent divine light, clarity, and transcendence, which may have been seen as fitting for the tribe of Gad, which was known for their effectiveness in warfare and prosperity in the land.

The associations of strength, courage, purity, wisdom, truth, and prosperity is fitting for this tribe, which was known for their skills as warriors and herdsmen, and their connection to the land. The enduring connection between the tribe of Gad and the land of Israel underscores the importance of this tribe in the history and theology of the Bible.
