The rimon is made of silver and consists of a shaft, a body, a head and an apex.

 The shaft is cylindrical. It is surmounted by a spheroid capital. The body has a pear shape. The body base is decorated with a band of arches and its top with a band of diamond network. Two narrow bands bears a dedicatory inscription in linear letters. The main band is decorated with floral pattern and intermittently with cartouches of floral motif and a Star^of^David bears an inscription: !ציון! !Zion! The hyperboloid head is mounted over a spheroid collar and is surmounted by pointed cap. Ten chains hang from the cap carring globular bells.

The bud shape apex is mounted over the body. The identical dedicatory inscription on both of the Rimons reads:
