    Clarke's Commentary on Genesis 24:53

    Jewels of silver, and jewels of gold - The word כלי keley, which we here translate jewels signifies properly vessels or instruments; and those presented by Eliezer might have been of various kinds. What he had given before, Genesis 24:22, was in token of respect, what he gave now appears to have been in the way of dowry.

    Precious things - מגדנת migdanoth. This word is used to express exquisite fruits or delicacies, Deuteronomy 33:13-16; precious plants or flowers, Sol 4:16; Sol 7:13. But it may mean gifts in general, though rather of an inferior kind to those mentioned above.
