In Reply to: SYMBOL (traditional jewish?) Please have a look: what does it mean? by Olaff Tryggvason of 6354

can only say that the top is a figure of the eternal flame (not a letter)like what is used over the ark of the covenant btween jews and G-d

In the mniddle is the letter in hebrew shin -might stand for the prayer the shema yisrael adonai elohanu adonoi echod (Hear oh Israel the Lord our G-d , the Lord is one)
on each side is the hebrew letter chi for good luck or #18
below looks like letter in hebrew for v(vov)-no idea what that represents-sometimes means and .

at any rate it is all good and wishing the best

shalom !
