This is a earrings.
These extraordinary earrings were handcrafted in the atelier of Hemmerle, a firm with a long tradition of jewelry making. In 1895, Hemmerle was appointed purveyor to the Royal Bavarian Court. In 1995, Stefan Hemmerle took control of the firm with his wife, Sylveli. In 2006, they were joined by their son, Christian, and his wife, Yasmin. Nature is an endless source of inspiration. The design of the jewelry is a collaborative process for the family and their workshop. Each piece is shaped through iterative sketches—some taking up to five hundred hours to complete. Hemmerle pairs high-quality stones with a distinctive mix of metals—here, copper, and gold.
