“And precious stones” (2nd Chronicles 9:10)
Every Friday night we light candles and sanctify the home in the tranquil light of Shabbat. This is a time of goodwill at which we bless the home, the family and the children. A popular custom is to light one candle for each family member. The Bagatelle Neora 10 Branch Candelabra was created from a fascinating encounter between two of Hazorfim’s favorite collections: Bagatelle and Neora. Hazorfim’s silver artists took inspiration from the Bagatelle diamond, a prestigious gem known to be particularly hard to polish. With meticulous craftsmanship, our skilled silversmiths overcame the soft nature of silver to delicately shape and polish the precious metal to give this piece the appearance of a diamond. The inspiration for the Neora collection is the four corners of the heavens. This collection is characterized by sharp angles and a stone-like appearance. The result of this combination is spectacular in its beauty; a magnificent candelabra that is a harmony of stone and diamond- joined together in unity.
Bagatel is a type of luxury diamond that is incredibly difficult to polish. This diamond inspired Hazorfim’s artists when they created the Bagatel Collection, resulting in silver artworks that share a sparkling, clean and polished appearance.
To maintain the brilliance and finish of a diamond when working with silver, Hazorfim’s artists had to overcome the soft nature of the metal, creating pieces with sharp and brilliant sides. Each piece in the Bagatel Collection is a complex arrangement of many parts, requiring time, knowledge and expertise- just like working with quality diamonds.
