Small Cornelian

Small Cornelian DR22

A tradition of the holiday is playing dreidel. Most people play for matchsticks, pennies, candies or chocolate coins. A dreidel is marked with the following four Hebrew letters: Nun, Gimmel, Heh and Shin. On Israeli dreidels, there is no Shin but rather a Peh, which stands for Po, meaning here.
This supposedly stands for the Hebrew phrase “nes gadol hayah sham,” a great miracle happened there. Some believe that it stands for the Yiddish words nit (nothing), gantz (all), halb (half) and shtell (put), which are the rules of the game! But of course in time honored Jewish tradition there is always someone with an alternative version! In this version everyone puts in one coin. Someone spins the dreidel. On Nun, nothing happens; on Gimmel you get the whole pot; on Heh, you get half of the pot; and on Shin, you put one in. When the pot is empty, everybody puts one in. Keep playing until one person has everything. Then re-divide it, because nobody likes a poor winner.

These ultra-modern “flying saucer” dreidels have been designed with the use of exquisite genuine gemstones, and Murano-inspired glass. If you’re going to spin, why not do it in style?!
