During these uncertain times, many of us find comfort in the message of Psalm-91. As a sign of faith, strength, and positivity, we have created a special 91>19™ bracelet since all of us need more faith than fear during these trying times. The psalm is seen as a source of comfort in times of suffering and is often recited for protection. It was written first by the great prophet Moses and later composed into amulets by Jews and Christians during the late antique period(1). Also known as the Soldier’s Prayer, it is imprinted on bandanas often distributed to US troops, and some say it before embarking on a journey. Some of us believe in God and the strong message from Moses, while others believe in the simple math of 91 always being greater than 19. The 19 is a nod to COVID-19 while the sterling silver material is a reminder of the ‘silver linings’ that occur even in the darkest of times. Symbolizing these sentiments through the bracelet, we want to take a moment to believe in the positivity of the greater good.
We have been very lucky and have been around for 30 years building great relationships with our retail partners and customers. Having much appreciation for everything we have received, we want to help those that are less fortunate and those who cannot help themselves - kids facing uncertainty and affected by illness, abuse or neglect. We want to help and we will contribute 100% of proceeds from this bracelet to Jewelers For Children until the world will spring back to normal. And we believe that it will.
Jewelers for Children (JFC) is a non-profit charitable foundation helping children across the world. Founded in 1999, Jewelers for Children was founded by the U.S. Jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need, by uniting the generous charitable giving efforts of the entire industry. Their programs benefit children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse, or neglect through various charity partners - St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, the Make-A-Wish® America, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA Association.
¹He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
²I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.
³Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
and from the noisome pestilence.
⁴He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under his wings shalt thou trust:
his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
⁵Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
⁶Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
⁷A thousand shall fall at thy side,
and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee.
⁸Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold
and see the reward of the wicked.
⁹Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge,
even the most High, thy habitation;
¹⁰There shall no evil befall thee,
neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
¹¹For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
¹²They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
¹³Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
¹⁴Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
¹⁵He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him.
¹⁶With long life will I satisfy him,
and shew him my salvation.
