The dreidel is made up of 18k gold with the same amount of white gold for the lettering of the Hebrew letters on four sides, with 222 modern round brilliant diamonds decorated on the lettering.
Estate Diamond Jewelers in New York City has created the world’s most valuable dreidel, according to Guinness World Records.
The 4.20-carat diamond is valued at $70,000 and took four months to craft.
It’s made up of 18k gold with the same amount of white gold for the lettering of the Hebrew letters on four sides, with 222 modern round brilliant diamonds decorated on the lettering.
“The inspiring message of Chanukah (aka Hanukkah) has always resonated with us, and we love whimsical jewelry, so naturally, we have always tried to get our hands on an important antique dreidel to add to the collection,” said Estate Diamond Jewelry in a blog post.
“A few months ago, however, we decided that we wanted to create our dream-dreidel all by ourselves, inspired by the artistic designs of the vintage jewelry from our collection. We had no idea how fun this journey would be.”
Separately, Hebrew Academy Community School in Margate, Fla., broke the Guinness World Record of the world’s largest dreidel.
