Yair Emanuel Stainless Steel Pomegranate Havdalah SetTop Modern Set
When you’re talking about modern Jewish Judaica, you can’t avoid mentioning Yair Emanuel.
Emanuel is arguably Israel’s most popular artist, so he obviously made it to the top of my list as well (you’ll see his name come up several times in this article).
His bestselling modern Havdalah set creates a seamless blend of contemporary design and Jewish tradition.
The entire set is made of stainless steel and is beautifully decorated with shiny pomegranates & leaves surrounding the Havdalah spice box, candle holder & Kiddush cup.
This ends your Shabbat or holiday (especially Rosh Hashanah) on a strong note and starts off your new week with a shiny spark of beauty.
What more could you ask from an Havdalah set?
Tip: Also makes a great Jewish housewarming Judaica gift.
Highly Polished Non-Tarnishing Metal Havdalah Set + Mother of Pearl Design
Here’s the thing with this Havdalah set – the set is pretty good, but the photo sucks.
Good thing many of you recommended it to me and that’s so popular on Amazon, otherwise, I would’ve ignored it just because of the lousy picture.
This contemporary Havdalah set is crafted from a highly polished metal alloy, with a unique, handmade mother of pearl design.
There are 4 pieces in this metal set:
- Gleaming ceremonial wine goblet (Kiddush cup)
- Jewish Spice box (with a pierced lit and a Star of David decoration)
- Havdalah candle holder
- Metal tray
Note: Resist the urge to judge it by the image alone like I did… it looks much better in real life.

Bonus: Fragrant spices are included in the Shabbat spice box.
Silver & Sterling Silver Havdalah Sets
Shabbat is referred to as the “queen” in Jewish tradition. The queen should be treated accordingly, don’t you think?
What better way to treat our queen than with a shiny, silver Havdalah set?

Nadav Art Isvei Sterling Silver Havdalah Set
This sterling silver Havdalah set is not for the faint-hearted, and it’s especially NOT the best choice if you’re just looking for a new Havdalah spice set you can use on a regular basis.
However, if you like the idea of getting someone you love a contemporary Havdalah set as a wedding gift, then hands-down – this is my favorite choice. This stunning Havdalah set can be proudly displayed as a decorative piece in the Jewish couple’s new home.
Tip: Technically, you could also use it as a functional Havdalah set. Should you do that? That’s up for debate… But I’ll leave that for you to decide.
In case you were wondering what that cone-shaped thing is – yes, that’s the Kiddush cup. The entire set is made of 925 sterling silver, with a base made of glowing brass. The (ball-shaped) spice holder hangs on the brass stand for quick & easy access.
Also, see that cute little illustration on the bottom? That’s an engraving of Jerusalem’s skyline… nice right?
All in all – this is a marvelous, glowing gift to get a Jewish couple for their wedding.
