“And causes the lightning of His cloud to shine” (Job 37:15)
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. To create the Bagatelle Five Branch Candelabra, 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. The result is a hand-crafted masterpiece whose sharp edges along the length of the candelabra give it the special and brilliant look of a high-quality diamond. 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.
