Mayim Bialik to Wear Custom Mezuzah Pendant to Emmys
In honor of her Jewish heritage, best supporting actress Emmy nominee, Mayim Bialik, will wear a customized mezuzah pendant to the ceremony on Sunday eve. Bialik, who is nominated for her role as “Amy Farrah Fowler” on the wildly popular, Big Bang Theory, has been working with North American Jewelers and Palladium Alliance to create the one-of-a-kind piece, states The Hollywood Reporter.

Although traditionally, mezuzahs are either rectangular or cylindrical, Bialik (with the expert design assistance of North American Jewelers CFO, Martin “Marty” Weinberger) chose a teardrop shaped pendant made from lightweight palladium.

Dubbed Operation Mozi Mezuzah, by The Big Bang Theory actress, Bialik “also decided to incorporate the Star of David with a diamond and sapphire: a symbol of her faith combined with the colors of the Israeli flag.”

In the frock department, Bialik will be clad in a dress designed by American designer, Pamella Roland. Her label has become popular among celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Garner, and Halle Berry.

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, featuring first-time host Jimmy Kimmel, will air on Sunday, September 23rd at 8ET on ABC.
