Hemmerle

Post by Christine Webb


Hemmerle!  Just look at this jewelry - you almost don't need to read anything about this amazing design house - really - just LOOK!  Hemmerle creations are so unique - all of the pieces are one-of-a-kind art jewels. Hemmerle is unlike any other jewelry design house.

It's very difficult to have a favorite piece of Hemmerle jewelry.  However, I gasped when I saw these earrings.  The intense blue sapphires against the vivid green patinated copper - and then the exquisite design - love love love these earrings! Beyond compare.

Christine's Gem to Remember

A fourth generation family run business that began in 1893, today Stefan and Sylveli Hemmerle run the business with their son, Christian, and daughter-in-law, Yasmin. The Hemmerle boutique is located in Munich, Germany and the handmade pieces are fabricated by 20 artists in a workshop a few blocks away. Hemmerle has long been revered in Germany as one of the country's premier contemporary jewelry designers. To quote from their website: Hemmerle is renowned for its dedication to craftsmanship, exceptional quality, innovative material combinations, and bold unostentatious creations.

These are a close second for my favorite Gem to Remember - the gems, the design, the blues - undeniably fabulous.
