The silver cylindrical coronet is divided into two parts: a base and an upper part. The flat base is surmounted by two convex strips. The bottom one decorated with floral scrolls and the top one with sections. The convex upper part is decorated with floral and foliate branches flanked on either side by a ribbon with a triple.... and a flower in the center. The upper edges are divided into two strips. The bottom strip is convex and bears a horizontal foliate design. The serrated top strip widens autwards and is decorated with acanthus leaves. A bar with two holes for the staves is attached across the lower edges of the coronet. A seperated plaque in a shape of an open hand is inserted through a hook which is attached to the inner side of the coronet. The hand bears a wreath of flowers with horns of plenty on either side tying together at the bottom with a triple ribbon. The center depicts an inscription within an outline of a flower in square filled letters and reads: "יהוה##שדי" "The Lord Shadai" The bottom of the hand bears a wavy cuff.
