Announcing The World’s Most Precious Yarmulke (Skullcap): Encrusted With Over 3,500 Swarovski Crystals And A 2 Carat Diamond
Celebrity Artist Toks Daniel and VeryFirstTo exclusively announces the launch of the world’s most precious Yarmulke (skullcap), which is encrusted with over 3,500 sparkling Swarovski crystals and crowned with a stunning 2 carat D colour flawless diamond. It is unveiled in time for Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights, celebrated around Christmas time (December 12th – December 20th 2017).
Toks Daniel is famed for his dazzling pieces adorned with crystals and diamonds with work admired and owned by celebrities throughout the globe. The creation of his first religious piece is inspired by his attraction to Judaism. Toks says: “Whilst I was a youngster in Nigeria, Jews had a rather exotic image. The more I have since been exposed to Jews and Judaism, the more I have become enamoured with its rituals, principles and aesthetics. My Yarmulke design is a manifestation of my enchantment with the religion.”
Toks has created pieces, from crystal encrusted soccer boots to effervescent caps, for famous personalities including: Didier Drogba; Jourdan Dunn; Jermaine Jackson; Leona Lewis; Sean Paul; Cristiano Ronaldo; Desmond Trufant; and Ian Wright. The boot designed for Ronaldo is displayed in Cristiano Ronaldo’s CR7 Museum.
It took Toks 14 days to conceive and create the Yarmulke, which requires every one of the crystals to be painstakingly placed and applied to a pre-ordained position. He collaborated with jeweller Robert Goodman for the pièce de résistance: a glorious solitaire cut diamond supplied by Goodman and set proudly atop a Star of David at the Yarmulke’s summit. Robert Goodman, has been a highly respected jewellery designer and maker based in Hatton Garden, the heart of London’s jewellery district, for twenty years.
A $1,330 (£1,000/ €1,123) donation will be made to Chabad Lubavitch of Nigeria should the yarmulke be purchased. The charity provides for the spiritual welfare of the Jewish community in Nigeria as well as promoting understanding, respect and diversity.
The world’s most precious yarmulke is available to purchase from VeryFirstTo at $167,000/ £125,000/ €140,000. Should one wish to purchase the yarmulke without the diamond the cost is $9300/ £7000/ €7800.
This remarkable Yarmulka is simultaneously a spectacular item of headwear and a scintillating work of art.
