“And cause our light to illuminate that it will not be extinguished” (from the prayers Kindling the lights)
Every Friday evening, we light candles and sanctify the house with the tranquil light of Shabbat. This is a time of goodwill, in which we bless the home, family and children. Bagatelle Medium Candlesticks are inspired by the luxury Bagatelle diamond, a prestigious gem known to be particularly hard to polish. The challenge for Hazorfim’s skilled silversmiths was to overcome the soft nature of silver. The result is a handmade pair of candlesticks- meticulously polished and with a delicate beauty. The sharp edges along the length of the candlesticks give them the special look of sparkling, high-quality diamonds. All that remains is to light the Sabbath candles and illuminate the world with a light of holiness and love.
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.
