When did Moshe make the rings of the Choshen?


Rashi: He made them independently, after the Choshen 1 and "al ha'Choshen" means (not on the Choshen, but) 'for the Choshen'. 2


Had it meant on (together with) the Choshen, the Torah would have begun the Pasuk withy "v'Asisa al K'tzos ha'Choshen Sh'tei Tab'os Zahav".


And the same applies to the cords (in Pasuk 22).


How did the Efod hold the Choshen in place?


Rashi and Rashbam: Via the two golden cords on top, which passed through the rings on the top edge of the Choshen and both ends of which were forced into the golden settings at the edge of the straps of the Efod; and via the Techeiles cords which tied the two rings at the bottom edge of the Choshen to the two equivalently-placed rings on the belt of the Efod.
