After the completion of the installation of the new grid's knotworks of the shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), other stages of the work started with the installation of the golden crowns's jewel (jawhara) on top of these knotworks, to be the meeting point of these two pieces of the golden crown of this silver knotworks.
This is one of the pieces that are installed on top of this crown called Jawhara, to be a linking point between its right and left pieces. There are 14 Jawhara with the same number of crowns, which were manufactured in a beautiful artistic way making it look as single piece all together with the rest of these pieces that complement each other.
The old Jawhara was made of silver and gold-plated, and the current one is made of 22 carat pure gold in a thickness of 1,25 mm, doubling the old Jawhara thickness.
These crowns have passed through several manufacturing works, and because it is made of gold, it needs an accurate precision and a longer time in its smithing, but it was not an obstacle that could delay the works or discourage the workers, as the manufacturing stage included a range of works starting from the manual hammering on the asphalt material, then taking it off the asphalt, after the completion of the engravings that are floral carvings similar to what exists on the current grid, as well as the whitening, polishing and colouring works to reach the final colour, to be concluded by the works of artistic carvings to embellish the crown's base.
