The W is a coveted seal of quality that only Wellendorff can bestow. Since the founding of the firm in 1893, Wellendorff has been churning out perfectly crafted pieces of German ingenuity that has took high society seductively by the collar. The most recognizable piece in their arsenal is the Wellendorff rope .To make these colliers, goldsmiths use up 160m of gold to gracefully wrap around the wearer’s neck; gold is treated like silk. Another Wellendorff piece that became an icon in the jewelry world is the revolving rings. These spinning rings are testaments to the genius that is Wellendorff. Armed with the highest artisan skill and the rare sensibility for quiet elegance, Wellendorff continues their tradition of genuine values up to this day. In its tenure, Wellendorff had created designs that will be viewed as pieces at the apex of jewelry making for centuries to come.
