 History of the Family Tree of Life name necklace.

The wearing of Tree of Life jewelry can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Christians, Jewish sources, Kabbalah and others. A book can be written about the history of the family tree but in this summery a few sources are posted.


In Catholic Christianity, the Tree of Life represents the immaculate state of humanity free from corruption and Original Sin before the Fall. Pope Benedict XVI has said that "the Cross is the true tree of life.” Saint Bonaventure taught that the medicinal fruit of the Tree of Life is Christ himself.


Saint Albert the Great taught that the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Christ, is the Fruit of the Tree of Life.


Jewish sources Etz Chaim and Tree of life (biblical) Etz Chaim, Hebrew for "tree of life," is a common term used in Judaism. The expression, found in the Book of Proverbs, is figuratively applied to the Torah itself. Etz Chaim is also a common name for yeshivas (Hebrew schools) and synagogues as well as for works of Rabbinic literature. It is also used to describe each of the wooden poles to which the parchment of a Sefer Torah (scroll of the five books of moses hand written on parchment) is attached.


The tree of life is mentioned in the Book of Genesis; it is distinct from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. After Adam and Eve fell from God's favour by eating fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they were cast out of the Garden of Eden. Remaining in the garden, however, was the tree of life. To prevent access to this tree in the future, two cherubs with a flaming sword were placed at the garden's entrance. (Genesis 3:22-24) In the Book of Proverbs, the tree of life is associated with wisdom: "Wisdom is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is every one that holdest her fast." (Proverbs 3:13-18) In 15:4 the tree of life is associated with calmness: "A soothing tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a wound to the spirit."


The Kabbalah Tree of Life derived from the Flower of Life The Book of Enoch, generally considered non-canonical, states that in the time of the great judgment God will give all those whose names are in the Book of Life fruit to eat from the Tree of Life.


Kabbalah Main article: Tree of life (Kabbalah) Jewish mysticism depicts the tree of Life in the form of ten interconnected nodes, as an important part of the Kabbalah. As such, it resembles the ten sephirot. The forms taken varied but the most common through the ages was the Tree of Life Necklace. In ancient times people would fashion Tree of Life pendants from wood, stone or bronze and wear them on a cord of leather or twine to make a necklace. The popularity of the Tree of Life Necklace has not only endured but has grown significantly in recent years, possibly in part due to the movie ‘the tree of life’ with Brad Pitt where the necklace had great significance.


Today there are many styles of family trees made from silver or gold plated. Most if not all are machine laser cut with names in script engraved by machine.
