The Torah crown is the most luxurious accessory we use for the Sefer Torah. Some congregations will only use Rimonim to adorn the Sefer Torah. A Torah crown is a much larger and a much more impressive ornament than just rimonin.
The different designs of crowns are divided into open crowns and closed crowns. Because the closed crowns are made with more silver they are heavier and more expensive. For the same reasons,many perfer the open crowns because they are lighter and cheaper.
Pure silver or silver plated
In recent years it has became more popular to use silver plated Torah crowns. We have a wide selection of silver plated Torah crowns having an identical look to our pure silver crowns. The base of the silver plated torah crown is copper, having an identical weight to silver, giving the silver plated crown a similar weight. The main advantage of choosing a silver plated Torah crown is the cheap price. Similarly, the main disadvantage is that in case of a scratch the coating would peel. Consequently, the scratch does not show as much so the consideration is mostly financial.
Various sizes of Torah crowns
There are 3 sizes of the Torah crown to choose from. The smallest and most rare one fits a 14" Sefer Torah. A medium sized one fits a 19" Sefer Torah. A large one fits a 22" and 23.5" Sefer Torah. Most of the crowns on our site fit a 22" Sefer Torah. We can also fit a crown for a particulary a large (23.5") or small (14") Sefer. Just let us know your size and we will custom make a crown to fit your Sefer.
Manufacture of Torah crowns
Nowdays, most Torah crowns are made at a factory. In contrast, an artist hand makes other Torah crowns at his shop. The hand made Torah crowns are more beautiful and unique.
