In 1893, Ernst Alexander Wellendorff founded a jewellery manufactory in Pforzheim. Today sees the fourth generation of Wellendorffs working for the company, and every design reflects the house’s heritage. The company’s genuine values are based on its traditional methods and an original, contemporary style. The manufactory’s signature piece is the Wellendorff rope – a gold necklace which is as soft as silk. The secret to this suppleness is skilful craftsmanship. Each necklace is hand woven from a gossamer-thin 18-carat gold wire.
