Sometimes good just doesn’t cut it—you want something that really shines. Of all the ketubahs in our collection, the luxe category possesses the most spectacular style. In terms of dimension, materials, and overall effect, a luxe ketubah is a bold and beautiful commemoration for a wedding. Crystals and gold leaf embellish already gorgeous designs, help these pieces really stand out during the ceremony and at home.
Making a ketubah as beautiful as possible with creative embellishments alludes to the concept of Hiddur Mitzvah—the idea that all our commandments should be followed and also made beautiful. This concept is why the Kiddish, or blessed wine, is sipped from a special goblet and not an everyday cup.
There’s also a historical precedent: many ketubahs in the past were also decorated with silver leaf, gold detail, and plenty of gorgeous embellishments. Beauty is worth pursuing and celebrating. Now, without further ado, here are five of our favorite luxe ketubahs:
This gorgeous Sasson Papercut ketubah features intricate papercut art depicting the sixth wedding blessing as well as plentiful symbolic patterns and touches. An already impressive visual impact is further heightened by sparkling crystals and gold leaf touches.
