When Jewish girls turn twelve, they become, in terms of Jewish law, adults. This means that they are now responsible for laws and customs like all other Jewish women. This maturation of Jewish girls is a very joyous occasion, and it is marked, usually, by Celebrations and showering the twelve year old with gifts. While there are many appropriate gifts for this occasion, such as Jewish books, Jewelry, clothes, and more, one of the most popular choices remains a jewelry box. Needless to say, Jewelry boxes will also be welcomed by brides to be and women of all ages.
All girls and women need jewelry; bat mitzvah girls,upon receiving so much jewelry on her special day, also needs a great jewelry box. In many Judaica stores, you will find typical Jewish jewelry boxes. For instance, a beautiful sterling silver box with a Star of David on the lid and a Hebrew writing from the Bible will make an excellent choice. In fact, if the girl-turned-woman is a fan of sterling silver, there are many options that will surely make her happy on her special day.
There are many types of such boxes, many of which are not necessarily thematically Jewish; however, since it is her bat mitzvah, you may want to stick with a Jewish motif. So, for instance, you can opt for a stunning round box with a velvet interior that will keep the jewelry intact. On the box you can have either the Twelve Tribes, the Hebrew names of our Four Mothers, Jewish symbols like, chai, and more. However, while these are all beautiful and befitting of the event, you can take this jewelry box to the next level by personalizing it.

If this is a gift for someone about to get married, you can engrave her Hebrew with a Hebrew that talks about love. There are many options and if you look hard enough, the sky is the limit.
If she is not into Sterling Silver, there are still many types of Jewish jewelry boxes that you can purchase for her. For instance, wood is always classic. It also comes in different colors, like dark wood, light wood, etc., which gives you plenty of options. Another great and very popular option is stained glass.
