You are looking at a shiny silver tone Dreidel Italian charm. This charm has a Dreidel Chanukah toy top done in yellow, red and blue with a green handle. The charm is outlined and detailed in gold tone. This is a very cute charm!
One of the best-known symbols of Chanukah is the Dreidel, a four-sided top with a different Hebrew letter on each side. The letters are Shin, Hey, Gimel and Nun. The letters mean A great miracle happened there. Dreidel is a popular game played during the holiday. Players use pennies, nuts, raisins, or chocolate coins called gelt as tokens or chips. The player spins the dreidel and when it stops, the letter facing up determines the fate. Nun indicates that nothing happens and the next player spins. Gimel means the player takes all tokens in the pot. Hey indicates that the player is to take half of the pot and Shin means the player must put one token into the pot.
What a great gift for anyone who loves this symbol of Chanukah and has enjoyed playing dreidel... or add it to your own Italian charm bracelet!
