Get to Know Tamir Pinchasi’s Merkaba Jewelry



Tamir Pinchasi has been making one-of-a-kind jewels at Tamir Jewels for 15 years. Now he’s debuting Merkaba to tell a geometric and harmonious (and repeatable) tale of design. The Merkaba—the word means “light-spirit-body”—has long held a significant place in certain spiritual movements, and the interlocked tetrahedrons of its geometric pattern “represent the duality of existence—body and spirit—united in the harmony of a singular form,” Pinchasi says. “The top is male, the bottom female, and together they are one light symbolizing a state of unconditional love, harmony, wisdom, and humility, which allows us to see ourselves in others.” Crafted in the United States, Merkaba pieces are made in 18k yellow and rose gold and in platinum, which speaks to Pinchasi’s history of high-end jewelry making, and feature fancy color and colorless diamonds and precious stones. Jewels come with unique serial numbers, certificates of authenticity, and packaging. “The Merkaba is the most powerful symbol of spiritual evolution,” Pinchasi says. “Merkaba jewelry combines exceptional artistry with spiritual magnitude.”
