The Yvel Jewelry Factory and Visitors Center is a great place to visit to learn about jewelry making with pearls & precious stones. In addition to the jewelry factory there is also a jewelry school for Ethiopian immigrants.
A factory tour lasts for 1.5 hours. Watch a video about jewelry making and pearls, and walk by the artists as they work. You will be introduced to the Megemaria Program and the Ethiopian immigrants who are learning the trade of jewelry making, and then you will be allowed to roam the factory store.
Visit the new Ethiopian Craft Village
You will be guided through a replica of an Ethiopian craft village by one of the Megemeria students. Hear about the Ethiopian culture and their journey to Israel. This is an incredible opportunity for school children to learn about a Jewish culture they may not be familiar with. To add this tour to your Yvel visit please request it in advance.
Party at Yvel
Yvel is also a beautiful and classy venue for a party. The factory store, as well as a covered outdoor area provide an ideal settings for an intimate dinner or a cocktail party. Ask YVEL about their jewelry workshops for parties and the wine tasting tours.
