Most Expensive Dreidel - Guinness World Records

Estate Diamond Jewelry was named as having the most expensive dreidel after handcrafting their own worth $70,000.

Before handcrafting this dreidel, they searched through 100’s of dreidel designs. Most of the contemporary artistic deviations didn’t seem faithful enough to the “classic dreidel design” and so it was decided that they would have to try to find the design inspiration themselves.

The final design was heavily inspired by the Chrysler Building, which is only a few blocks away from the Estate Diamond Jewelry showroom.

The diamond-encrusted script of the Hebrew characters (Nun, Gimmel, Hey, and Shin) are formal and are more similar to the Hebrew characters found in the Torah Scroll than the characters typically used in traditional modern Hebrew writing.

The bottom of the Dreidel has a rounded bezel (instead of a squared bezel) in order to heighten the important 4.20-carat diamond that is set within.

As of November 27th, 2019, the dreidel was officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the most valuable dreidel in the world.

Guinness World Records also sent a crew to film and document the story of the dreidel.
