Hemmerle Jewelry Consignment
Now in its fourth generation, Hemmerle is a family business celebrated for its exceptional quality, craftsmanship, innovative material combinations and bold creations. In 1893, brothers Josef and Anton Hemmerle took over a distinguished jewelry and medal firm in Munich, where Hemmerle remains today. The highly successful firm was patronized by the Bavarian Royal Court, German princely houses, the Bavarian Government and other discerning clientele. Hemmerle’s jewels have won prizes, including an award at the international Exhibition of 1900 in Paris. The House of Hemmerle celebrated 125 years in 2018.
