/Who’s Ready for Hanukkah?

Who’s Ready for Hanukkah?

Hanukkah, finally returning to a later date this year (as opposed to last year’s Thanksgivikkah celebrations) begins tomorrow evening! If you’re readying the brisket and breaking out your Menorah, I’m wishing you a joyous Festival of Lights. If you’re still in the dark about what, exactly, Hanukkah/Chanukah is, exactly. Allow me to enlighten you.

Now, there are two things you need to properly celebrate Hanukkah in style. Three if you count sufganiyot, and you should. But the other two are simple. One, you will want to (and need to) break it down to this new song, in addition to your classic Sandler standby’s.

The greatest. And in addition, you’ll need a stylish Star of David to wear atop your perfect winter ensemble. RLJ has quite a few options, ranging from huge, Rapper-sized pendants to demure, diamond studded stars. It’s a matter of personal preference, but I’ve chosen some of our more…traditional looks (if you do wan’t the blinged out Star though, swing by and I’ll help ice you out.)

14k White Gold Diamond Star of David Pendant on Chain

First up is a gorgeous, diamond studded star set in white gold. This one features g/h colored and vs1 clarity diamonds.


Roberto Coin’s take on this same style featured fewer, but larger diamonds on each of the star’s 6 points. Approximately 0.09ctw of Diamonds, G in Color and H/SI1 in Clarity are all set in 18kt white gold.


A yellow gold star is perfect for those with warmer skin tones or just a preference for yellow gold. This Star of David is 14kt yellow gold with crushed diamonds alternating with bright gold.


Elsa Peretti’s Tiffany collaborations are always a smooth, fluid sight for sore eyes, and her Star of David pendants are no exception. It’s equally as stunning in 18kt yellow gold…


As it is in classic Tiffany & Co. sterling silver.
