Many museums exhibit some of the marvels of 18th century goldsmithing, rarely emulated by modern craftsmen. However, for flawlessness and richness inembellishment this Havdalah set, based on a neo-Classical style, yet made in the 21st century, can easily stand next to the finest museum pieces anywhere in the world. Literally fit for a king or emperor, the whole set is made out of two-tone 18 karat gold, weighing 6.5 kilograms and adorned with thousands of rubies and hundreds of diamonds. It consists of five parts – each a complete masterpiece in
itself. There is the candle holder, a kiddush cup, Besamim (spice) box, a tray on which these items stand, as well as a casing in which the Siddur (prayer book) is kept.
