So, I was going through the basement and I found a necklace. There are Hebrew letters on it, but I don't know enough Hebrew to try and figure out what it says.

One side is definitely a chai, like this [ חי] while the other side is sort of confusing. It has three letters, the third one is definitely [ל] but the other two are confusing. The second could be [ו] or [ז] and the first one (from the right) could be [ת] or [ח]

I could be very wrong, and I'll try to get pictures, but I was wondering if anyone more learned in Hebrew had any ideas.

Pictures! Sideways pictures, but they're from my phone, so I did my best.

You are right, it does look confusing to me as well.

I'm sure there is someone here who will be able to "dechiper" it though!

It looks like it could be "chazal," a term for the Talmudic sages. Although since it's an acronym (for "our sages of blessed memory") it's normally written חז"ל. (The " indicates an acronym.) It seems an unusual word to put on a necklace though.

I agree with LineyLu. Those are certainly the letters. But it is a strange word to put on a necklace.
