Best of the Best 2012: Jewelry: Unconventional Materials: Hemmerle

Jill Newman

The German jewelry house Hemmerle seems to know no boundaries when it comes to raw materials, freely mixing aluminum, wood, and lava stones with exceptional gemstones and diamonds. "We have lifted the barriers of tradition and convention in jewelry," says Christian Hemmerle, a fourth-generation jeweler who is taking a leading role in his family’s Munich-based company. These earrings (price upon request)—made with petrified mammoth ivory, 1920s European-cut diamonds, and copper—attest Hemmerle’s ability to innovate while staying true to the brand’s purity of form and design.
