Gentle Giant’s Grace – Giraffe Ketubah

Gentle Giant’s Grace – Giraffe Ketubah

Giraffe – Africa’s “gentle giant” is literally what the nickname describes: a gigantic animal that may seem terrifying, but only for a couple of seconds. Giraffes are known for their gentleness, tenderness, and grace. Even though they truly are giants, the behavior of a giraffe does not reflect its strength and dominance over other animals. While some would expect them to showcase brutality and viciousness due to their size, there isn’t a single trace of malice in the character of a giraffe, which makes them absolutely loveable and adorable. Whether a giraffe is your favorite animal, or you’re interested in their symbolism, we will not neglect either aspect.

Many associate giraffes with magnificent beauty, as they are truly breathtaking. Their large eyes and long eyelashes have become a symbol of beauty, inspiring many artists and works of art. Aside from the obvious beauty they possess, giraffes are also seen as majestic creatures which possess incredible soothing energy.

Once again, we have to mention the eyes of a giraffe, which signify purity and hope. Due to the calm, nowhere near aggressive nature of the giraffe, they have been associated with peace, and given that they’re particularly silent animals, they also represent shyness and reservedness. On the other hand, the 20-inch-long tongue of the giraffe has been described as a symbol of eloquence in some cases. The first association to a giraffe must be elegance, its incredible poise, and almost intoxicating aura.

In certain cultures, a giraffe stands for limitless knowledge. Some people believe that a giraffe can see into heavens since its neck stretches through the clouds, so they can take a peek at hidden cosmic plans. The long neck also allows the giraffe to spot the danger and change the location once they’ve been threatened, which makes a giraffe the symbol of awareness. Finally, giraffe’s ability to see higher than the majority of creatures may signify one’s determination to see past the hardships and negativity towards a brighter future.

Onto Noah’s Ark ketubah design is a perfect representative of our unique style and determination to blend the modern and the traditional together. Here we have a beautiful representation of the animals entering the Noah’s Ark – the most prominent being giraffes, in all their glory and grace. What makes this giraffe ketubah piece stand out is a bold mix of vibrant colors and prominent patterns which give it a whole new dimension.

Leave Your Mark On The World: Fingerprint Ketubah

Leave Your Mark On The World: Fingerprint Ketubah

Leaving your fingerprint on a document may seem like a mere technicality – something to be recognized by other than your name; something to facilitate your identity in the world. How could something so technical and official as a fingerprint hide a strong symbolism? If you’re a fan of our ketubah designs for quite a while you’re already familiar with our philosophy, but if you’re just getting to know our vision, it is important to state that we’re far from traditional, and nowhere near conventional. We let our imagination run wild with ketubah designs and inspiration we pick for each of them – one category being the fingerprint ketubah collection. If you’re interested to discover more about our take on the symbolism of fingerprints, then keep on reading.

There aren’t two people in the world, not even identical twins, that are sharing the very same fingerprint. Can you imagine that? Over 7 billion people in the world, and not two identical fingerprints – that is a notion hard to process. Unique fingerprints may be one of the strongest proofs of our originality and uniqueness. Even if some people resemble each other, have similar interests or fears, they’re still individuals, separate souls who should celebrate their uniqueness and individuality – symbolized by a one-of-a-kind fingerprint. And no, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t feel connected to each other – it’s just that each of us has something new and different to bring to the table, which is represented by a fingerprint. We could imagine that each of our traits, both qualities and flaws, is represented by the tiny lines in our fingerprint.

So, if a fingerprint stands for individuality, why incorporate it into ketubah designs, which should stand for unity, togetherness, and sharing? Well, the truth is that we should not lose that special spark, that unreplicable uniqueness that exists in each and every one of us, even when deciding to spend our lives together. Only by accepting each other the way we are and letting each grow while being together can we know the true meaning of love – and that’s what fingerprint ketubah is all about.

The Oak ketubah design takes the symbolism of a fingerprint to a whole new level, by incorporating the significance of your wedding guests. Firstly, the oak design includes two birds – symbolizing love and marriage, while the oak stands for their shelter and support in life – their loved ones. This particular ketubah design is part of our special fingerprint collection, allowing your loved ones to imprint their own fingerprints – becoming an eternal part of this monumental event in your lives.

Your Own Piece of Paradise: Garden Ketubah

Your Own Piece of Paradise: Garden Ketubah

Since the beginning of time, people have had an inexplicable, strong, what many would consider innate urge to be one with nature –  whether it be seaside, woods, mountain, or a garden. Being in nature, especially in solitude, triggers an entire eruption of emotion in us, as being in a garden or any other natural sight allows us to look deep down inside ourselves and truly reflect on our lives. Back in the day, people used to live in harmony with nature, and it seemed as if they were one. Nowadays, it is our primary concern to cherish and nourish the nature we’ve so carelessly neglected, and celebrate it through our gardens, rivers, and fields.

The garden inspired ketubah collection will be a perfect choice for passionate gardeners. Through history, we can distinguish different phases of the development of gardening, according to its primary purpose. First and foremost, gardens were made for people to cultivate plants they would later use in their nutrition, or to feed their animals (although we do believe they still managed to find some joy in this delicate, complex activity). Later on, gardening evolved into a business, and people were no longer planting their garden only for themselves, but to sell their goods, as well. Somewhere along the way, cultivating and maintaining a garden has become a passion and a hobby. Even though having a garden can still feed families and bring profit, there are more and more people who do this out of pure love and admiration for nature. Today, gardens are also extremely popular since people have recognized how mass production and the heavy involvement of chemistry have jeopardized the purity and quality of the soil and its products.

On the other hand, there are also botanical gardens, which can often seem unrealistic and fairytale-like. Many botanical gardens have been chosen as wedding sights, and have hosted numerous wedding ceremonies, due to their magical atmosphere and paradise-like scenery.

The Deco Flowers ketubah design is a perfect representation of the garden inspired collection and the celebration of nature. In this mesmerizing modern ketubah design, we have a portrayal of a garden of thornless roses, symbolizing a life of happiness, joy, and prosperity for the newlyweds. The absence of thorns on the red roses in this garden stands for all the hardships and challenges the love birds have overcome, reaching their own happy place, and deciding to share those blessings forever.

Joining Your Lights Into One: Ketubah with Candles

Joining Your Lights Into One: Ketubah with Candles

Candles have an extremely deeply rooted position in many aspects of life, from religion and spirituality to personal events of great importance. Not only do candles largely contribute to the overall atmosphere, but they do also have a very important, precious role history, tradition, and many other spheres – hence their strong, undeniable symbolism. Besides the strong symbolism in history and tradition, candles can signify different things for different people, as they’re implemented in many great events, whether it be welcomes or goodbyes. Nevertheless, candles and their powerful symbolism mark significant, emotional, remarkable moments, some of which have been creatively represented in our Ketubah with Candles collection.

In different traditions and cultures, candles have unique representations and meanings behind them, as their symbolism is perceived differently. One of the views on the symbolism of candles is that its light represents a person’s inner light – their power, will, and motivation. Candle lights are also often used in ceremonies, as they can signify people coming together and joining their lights to burn even brighter. In some cultures, the light of a candle represents one’s soul and the light it represented in the world. Candles are also often associated with romance and relaxation, due to their subtleness and sensuality.

When it comes to art, some of the biggest masterpieces in the world have been created in the candlelight. We can rest assured that candles have witnessed many first chapters, sketches, and plans before seeing the birth of great works of art. Throughout history, candles have guided great artists of the world through the creative process once the sun would go down, but the inspiration would start running wild. If it weren’t for candles, perhaps that incredible inspiration and drive artists get in the night time would have to be slept on, and mornings just wouldn’t feel the same. Candles have preserved artistic freedom and guided creativity for as long as there was no electricity. We bet some modern artists feel envious of these times, as candles bring about a mystical, unreplicable atmosphere.

Speaking of art, we’ve found a way to bring modern art and the great symbolism of candles together, and create beautiful ketubah designs portraying different interpretations. The Shabbat Candle ketubah design presents one of the longest traditions in the Jewish culture – lighting a Shabbat candle. What makes this candles inspired ketubah design unique is the way it seamlessly blends the traditional with the new and modern, while emphasizing the beauty of both worlds.

Embodiment of Extravaganza: Baroque Ketubah

Embodiment of Extravaganza: Baroque Ketubah

If you consider yourself and your stylistic preferences modest, simple, and down-to-earth, Baroque is just not the way to go. Baroque is strong, bold, attention-seeking, and never shy. Baroque is always in the spotlight, as its primary purpose was to draw attention, turn heads, and be a testimony of power, luxury, and class. Although we cannot say its influence is largely present in the modern day architecture, the remains of Baroque represent not only a memory of an extravagant age, but an artistic inspiration that lives on. To this day, the mark that Baroque has left on architecture is examined, studied, adored, and considered a treasure.

Baroque is a movement that originally appeared in the 17th century, following the Renaissance, under a great influence of the Catholic Church. At first, the very purpose of Baroque was to oppose the Protestant Church and everything it represented. Therefore, since Protestant architecture was characterized by simplicity and modesty, Baroque was supposed to be the complete opposite – as extravagant and loud as ever. It is safe to say that Baroque did not fail to amaze, and it even may have exceeded some expectations. Baroque brought grandeur to life, emphasizing colors, shapes, and forms; relying on contrast and variety of details, and creating an overall sense of luxury. Needless to say, Baroque triggered many heated discussions and divided artists and admirers. Some found Baroque fascinating and mesmerizing, while others detested its tackiness and even perceived it as utterly bizarre.

As far as architecture is concerned, Baroque seems to have had the greatest impact on churches, which is not surprising at all given the circumstances of its creation. Some of the most famous staples of Baroque in architecture include St. Peter’s Basilica, Chair of Saint Peter, Quadratura in the Jesuit Church, and The Entry of Saint Ignace into Paradise, among others. It is also important to note that Baroque did not only mark architecture, but other spheres of art, including music, theater, and ballet.

For some, Baroque may have been a lifestyle, representing freedom of expression, and love for the details. The Tehran Baroque ketubah is a representative of the Persian Jew community, embracing the traditional Persian Jewish style, very much resembling the bold works of Baroque. It is daring, colorful, and eye-catching, and every single detail in this Baroque ketubah piece has been carefully selected. For more Baroque-inspired ketubah pieces, make sure to check out our full Baroque ketubah collection.

Back to Our Roots: Vintage Ketubah

Back to Our Roots: Vintage Ketubah

We know what you may be thinking as you’re reading the title, Vintage ketubah? Isn’t this website all about a modern take on ketubah designs? Well, as paradoxical as it may sound, vintage might just be the new modern, since it has made its presence very clear in different spheres of modern life – including art. We are witnessing the comeback of vintage, and it seems that it is here to stay. There are just some strings with the past that should never be broken, and vintage style is the best proof of that theory. If you’re all about that vintage life – you’ll absolutely adore our vintage ketubah collection!

How often can you hear the word vintage nowadays? It has returned with a bang when it comes to fashion, interior, music, and many other spheres. In fashion, vintage style is worshiped and absolutely a must. No matter how many innovations are thrown our way, vintage seems to bounce back from it and take over the market. The strong presence of vintage can also be felt in different aspects of architecture and interior design, as more and more people are gravitating towards vintage style as opposed to the minimalistic modern approach. Call it melancholy or sentimentalism, but one thing is clear: great styles from the past will never go out of style, so it’s no wonder many people choose to go down the memory lane.

What’s particularly interesting to see is a blend of modern art and vintage elements, which has become very common. Just because vintage is greatly appreciated doesn’t mean that modern should be underappreciated. It is always fascinating getting to have the best of both worlds, and even creating our own style by combining certain aspects of vintage with other alternatives. The same rule applies to ketubah design, which is something we’ve made very clear in this company: you should be the designer of your ketubah, and the possibilities are unlimited!

The Persian ketubah is one of our many vintage ketubah designs, celebrating and cherishing tradition. Just like all the other vintage ketubah pieces, this one has an interesting background story and a strong message. This ketubah design is inspired by the unique, unreplicated style of the Persian Jewish community, incorporating bold, rich colors and golden, luxurious patterns in this gorgeous vintage design. It stands for the unity of the Jewish culture and the Persian heritage, which have been interconnected for thousands of years.

Light and Darkness in Harmony: Dusk Ketubah

Light and Darkness in Harmony: Dusk Ketubah

That magical moment right before the evening takes over the day when the darkness carefully glazes over the darkness, creating a rhapsody of colors all over the sky – the dusk of the day. Although often confused with flaming sunsets, dusk actually represents a very special moment right after the sun has set – but not completely. It occurs just before the sun has left the sky completely, introducing nighttime, and dusk may just be the most mesmerizing instance captured in the sky. The transition between the fire-red sunsets and the blue, dark night sky marries into a fascinating mixture of colors, making dusk captivating.

What the dusk also represents is a gate between two worlds. It is a very significant moment on the verge of the day, and the very beginning of the night. Dusk represents a moment of tranquility, peacefulness, and serenity – just a perfect time to gather your thoughts, disconnect from the outside world and take in the beauty of the present moment. Dusk occurs once the noise and the chatter of a busy day cease, and the night is about to take over and conclude the day. The dusk of the day captures the very last rays of the sun and turns them into an enchanting, vibrant outburst of colors splattered all over the sky. It is the dusk of the day when you look up to the sky and think, There is no greater artist than nature!

It is in this time of the year, spring, that dusks tend to be more captivating than ever. The sunshine makes its anticipated return, days are longer, and we have to wait for the dusk longer – but it is always worth the wait. After gloomy, grey, cold winter days, dusks are once again vivid and filled with colors, symbolizing a fresh start.

The Flying into the Dusk ketubah portrays dusk in all its glory, combining it with another symbolic image – two white birds flying together. The two birds flying into the dusk together represent love, unity, as well as freedom which is shared and enjoyed in their unity. Birds also stand as prominent symbols of hope and life, just like the dusk, which is precisely the kind of energy you want your ketubah to radiate. Interested in more dusk-inspired ketubah designs? Discover our dusk ketubah collection gallery for more unique ketubah designs combining the boldness of modern art and the vibrancy of a spring dusk!

Colorful Awakening: Spring Ketubah

Colorful Awakening: Spring Ketubah

As we’re approaching the end of winter, leaving the cold, eventful holiday season behind, we’re welcoming spring – the time when everything seems to come alive, shaking off the snow and frost, and embracing the very first sun rays. Days are longer, nights are shorter, and spring seems to be just the perfect opening for what’s next – summer, quite possibly the most anticipated season of them all. Now, let’s not allow summer to take the spotlight just yet when spring has so much to offer. Let’s enjoy spring, as brief as it may be, and take in every single blossoming flower and the magic of nature’s awakening.

Spring truly does bring a breath of fresh air along with it. After long, cold, grueling winter months when everything seems to cease and disappear, spring announces the return of the sun, which triggers an awakening in nature. The skies are blue, the days are warmer, the air is no longer crisp, and the leaves turn green, just as everything else around us. A dreamy, passive, dull winter atmosphere all of a sudden gets reversed, and spring introduces brand new energy, which does not only symbolize renewal in nature but in human lives, as well.

Spring cleaning isn’t just a phrase, and there is a reason why people find spring to be the best time for new beginnings. Yes, we all start our resolutions list at the very beginning of the year, but during winter we’re usually still unmotivated for changes. With new spring energy, we are inspired to revamp our closets – and our lives! Spring cleaning is so much more than rearranging your living space and throwing away those jeans you’re never going to wear – it represents a process of clearing our minds and souls, as well. Spring is a symbol of renewal, rebirth, and starting anew, which makes it a perfect time for new projects, adventures, loves, friendships, and everything else that truly makes us happy.

Did you have a spring wedding, or was it spring when you first kissed? Regardless of what spring represents in your relationship, you’ll love our spring ketubah collectionIn Love With Spring is a perfect representative of this colorful collection, which portrays nature coming to life through a blossomed tree. The combination of pastel colors and bold pinks and blues brings together the two main aspects of our ketubah designs: the romantic and sensual side on one hand, and modern art on the other.

The Perfect Click: Connection Ketubah

The Perfect Click: Connection Ketubah

No matter what you do in life, it is always about that special connection: the way you connect with your emotions, your work, your environment, and especially people. The connection we build or fail to achieve with certain people seems to be one of the most complex matters in life – and the most important. Not everyone can click, and you won’t be able to feel that unique connection with every person you meet. And while that may sound scary, it is also kind of relieving – knowing that we aren’t meant for everyone and that the right kind of connection will happen only with the people who are truly meant to be in our lives.

One of the most special connections we can establish in our lives is with our friends. They say that friends are the family we choose, and it takes a very strong connection for someone to be considered family when they’re not indeed related. The foundation of a friendly connection incorporates unlimited trust, loyalty, love, and above everything else – respect. One can have many acquaintances and meet many people, but only a few can be considered true friends and acquired family, which is a connection that never fades.

A connection that is often considered the strongest is love between two people who have both felt that spark. They say that we’re all bound to find our soulmate, and when we do, it is an instant, undeniable connection that everyone will notice. This strong, beautiful connection is the essence of life and the true meaning of happiness. Our connection inspired ketubah collection portrays the connection between two people which escalates into a loving union, symbolized by a ketubah. One of our connection ketubah designs could be the testimony of the connection you and your loved one feel and celebrate.

The Love Entwined ketubah design represents unity and connection by portraying two trees intertwining. This connection inspired ketubah represents merging of two lives, which have forever been joined in marriage. It also emphasizes and celebrates the fact that the two trees, representing each of the union members, are still individuals, as their branches are meeting and combining – symbolizing their connection. What’s special about this particular connection ketubah design is that it also combines your Ketubah and the Signing Board. Your guests will get to leave their own mark on your custom ketubah by imprinting their fingerprints! This way your ketubah will not only symbolize the connection you have with your spouse, but it will also eternalize the friendships and family relations.
