Along with several hundred other designs in the Wellendorff sample book, the Wellendorff cord, completely made of 18k gold, and rotating ring, with its ingeniously engineered mechanism, are handcrafted by specialists in the brand’s headquarters at Pforzeim in Württemberg. Every day, between 20 and 30 pieces of jewelry are created for their discriminating clientele. Refined rather than ostentatious, Wellendorff jewelries are tangible representations of the brand’s core values, Wahre Werte “Genuine Values”. In the words of a Wellendorff, their jewels are not Christmas tree decorations. Rather these pieces underscore the personality of the owner.
