Triple-Layered Silver Necklace with Iolite
Article Number 23420
In collaboration with an Italian manufacturer of chains for bracelets and necklaces, Guthmann developed this necklace with a matching bracelet. The method of manufacture creates the textile impression of the two pieces of jewellery: the Italian manufacturer winds classic Venetian chains with delicate silver wires. Their irregular course produces a resemblance to brocade. Guthmann manufactures completed pieces of jewellery with toggle clasps from these chains in the manufactory in Pforzheim.
Iolite. A stone which shimmers in several colours.
Guthmann has set three water sapphires, called iolites in gemology, in this necklace. Of the few gemstones which come with a multi-coloured look, the iolite is one, and, depending on the incidence of light, it will sometimes turn blue-grey, sometimes violet. The stones come from India and are polished in Jaipur by a firm which has collaborated with the Pforzheim manufacturer for many years.
Guthmann also produces an earrings set with water sapphires to match the two pieces (Article Number 23421).
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.
