About the artist
Maison Hemmerle is a fourth generation family run house at the vanguard of jewellery design. Each jewel conceived is unique and as original as a work of art. Today, Stefan and Sylveli Hemmerle run the business with their son, Christian, and daughter-in-law, Yasmin. Hemmerle remains renowned for its dedication to craftsmanship, exceptional quality, innovative material combinations, and bold, unostentatious creations. A short history of Maison Hemmerle: In 1893, in Munich, brothers Joseph and Anton Hemmerle take over an established goldsmiths’ company specialising in medals and orders, whose clients include the Bavarian Royal family. The brothers bring their own style and ideas to the business, renamed Hemmerle, exploring materials and refining craftsmanship. In 1895, Hemmerle is appointed 'Purveyor to the Court' by Luitpold, Prince Regent of Bavaria. They become renowned for the 'bejewelled fantasies' they create for Ludwig III of Bavaria, the Bavarian government and the great families of the German nobility. In 1986, the boutique on Maximilianstrasse is renovated by Carl and Lore Hemmerle. In 1995, Hemmerle participates in Tefaf Basel, an art and antiques fair held at the Messe Basel that ran for 4 years. Hemmerle shows work at Palm Beach, a jewellery, art and antiques fair in Florida.
