GEMSTONE TOWN OF IDAR-OBERSTEIN
Idar-Oberstein in Rhineland-Palatinate is one of the best-known gemstone centres in the world and is often mentioned in the same breath as Antwerp, Hong Kong and New York. The history of this town in the heart of Europe has been linked with gemstones since 1375. Starting with agate findings, Idar-Oberstein developed over the centuries into a skills centre for the processing and trade of gemstones. This is how gemstone jewellery from Idar-Oberstein now finds its way directly or via the best jewellers in the world to celebrities, aristocrats and royalty.
Wearing natural, handmade jewellery with genuine coloured gemstones is a source of intense joy to both the wearer and the beholder. We have always wanted to create jewellery to give this feeling to as many people as possible. Modern sales channels such as shopping channels make our dream come true.
All trades required for the manufacture of gemstone jewellery (such as goldsmiths, stone setters and gem cutters) are employed in the company. A worldwide network to the best sources of coloured gemstones allows us to create jewellery with an exceptional price-performance ratio in a broad range. Pieces of jewellery from our “Sogni d’oro” lines are some of the most successful on German shopping channels. Our jewellery is sold internationally in Japan, China and Western Europe.
