“Life is Short – Buy the jewelry, drink the wine, order the dessert.”
The word “Chai” in Hebrew means life. The 2020 pandemic has reiterated the importance of life and its value for each of us. As we realize that there is nothing more precious than the miracle of life itself, a piece of jewelry that celebrates life seems a perfect way to express this sentiment. From miniature chai pendants in gold to the more classic Chai pendants with diamonds, the chai symbol is more in demand than ever.
“May every Evil Eye in your life go blind.”
With the pandemic bringing in some tough times, Evil eye jewelry items are flying off the shelves. Carrying or wearing the Evil eye symbol is believed to protect the wearer from misfortune caused by the harmful intent of others. Since Talmudic times, the Jewish have worn the Evil eye charm around their necks to safeguard themselves.
Evil eye jewelry is available in a variety of designs, from classic to modern, so there is something to suit all tastes. A traditional Evil eye pendant in gold is preferred by some, while others like to match the Evil eye symbol with the protective Hand of Hamsa to fortify its protective powers.
Working from home, virtual schooling, and home isolation have their own positive effects. It has brought families under one roof. People are doing everything from home, and this means families now have the chance to celebrate Shabbat together every week. In a pre-pandemic world, traditions had to be compromised in the busy hum-drum of routine life and its demands.
Many families have recultivated the habit of welcoming Shabbat in its traditional form. Hence, there is a growing demand for Kiddush cups. Handcrafted in sterling silver with an inside plating of gold renders our range of Kiddush cups perfect for the supper ceremonies.
Kiddush cups come in a variety of designs, with filigree and Yemenite designs topping the list. Small Kiddush cups in silver make great gifts for children. They are also preferred gift options for Bar mitzvah ceremonies.
