The Brit Mila symbolizes the covenant between God and his people. The importance of this ceremony is made clear by the use of extremely beautiful and expensive objects during the Brit. 

A set for circumcision made of silver and partly gilded is one fine example. 

Great attention was also given to the baby's clothing. As this is a very important event, the clothes were made of fine fabrics and were richly decorated.
