Catalogue Note

2018 marks the 125th anniversary for the sophisticated Munich-based jewelry firm, Hemmerle. Currently run by fourth generation jewelers Stefan and Sylveli Hemmerle and their son and daughter-in-law, Christian and Yasmin, the house has become synonymous with avant-garde jewels – mixing colors, textures and materials in a way that is truly its own. The workshop produces no more than 350 one-of-a-kind jewels a year, and their singular boutique is located on Munich’s most fashionable shopping boulevard, Maximilianstrasse.

The jewels on offer here are quintessentially Hemmerle for their bold, fashionable designs which blend traditional elements with uncommon materials. The tourmaline and multi-colored sapphire earrings pair together to present a surprisingly harmonious color combination. The other pair of earclips is set with moonstones, mandarin garnets and wood, creating a rich caramel-colored design with striking surface texture and sheen. Hemmerle’s talent for transforming the antique into cutting-edge design is beautifully captured by the ring with its finely carved cameo nestled within a pavé-set modernist mount. All three pieces illustrate why jewels by Hemmerle are among the most sought-after pieces by connoisseurs of both art and design today.
