Gold Panned from German Rivers.
The gold for this pendant in the form of an alchemistical sun symbol was produced from German rivers without mercury or cyanide. An environmentally compatible mineral slurry is all that is used to separate the material from gravel and sand. The bowl-shaped pendant design refers to Celtic coinage found in Bavaria, called "Schüsselchen" (i. e. small bowl) in common German parlance. The stamping process gives this otherwise soft, fine gold additional hardness and the bowl shape lends the pendant more stability.
Jewellery from Pforzheim. Martin Guthmann.
Making high-quality jewellery that’s affordable for more people was the idea the goldsmith Martin Guthmann had in 1906 for his jewellery manufacturing business. The business is run today in the fourth generation by his great grandson, with all production still located in the jewellery and gold centre of Pforzheim. Milled, stamped, drawn and cast parts in the factory are assembled by hand in smaller series. The designs include among other things old jewellery shapes and ornaments from the company’s archive which are recast and assembled with updated traditional manufacturing techniques.
