For more than 127 years, the Wellendorff family business has been creating exceptional precious jewellery from 18-karat gold in the Golden City of Pforzheim. Love has always been the inspiration for each of its creations since the family-run business was founded in 1893. Still today, the manufactory is run with great dedication on the part of the fourth generation and is the only jewellery manufactory that remains in the hands of the founding family. This exceptional attention to detail is particularly evident in two creations that have come to be seen as style icons in the history of jewellery. Referred to by jewellery connoisseurs as the worldâ€™s softest necklace and the worldâ€™s most vibrant ring, the Wellendorff rope and the Wellendorff ring were inspired by very personal love stories.
The necklace is a combination of seemingly contrasting elements: hard, 18-karat gold is as soft as silk against the skin, creating a new dimension in the world of jewellery â€“ the way it feels. The ring is characterised by the vibrant colour reflections of the shockproof Wellendorff cold enamel developed in the manufactory and by the precisely crafted spinning inner ring. The technically unrivalled setting of the diamonds to maximise their brilliance underlines the superb skill and quality of the companyâ€™s goldsmiths.
Each piece is crafted from carefully selected materials by the goldsmiths in the manufactory and carries the unmistakeable Diamond W emblem. The Wellendorff jewellery manufactoryâ€™s exclusive trademark stands for exceptional German-made goldsmithery and is the quintessence of the companyâ€™s philosophy: From Love. The Best.
