A bracelet that wraps itself around the wrist and keeps its shape without the need for a clasp? Everyone said that it would be impossible. However, the master goldsmiths at Wellendorff succeeded in creating flexible gold. The EMBRACE ME Brilliance of the Sun bracelet made of flexible gold elegantly wraps itself around the wrist and enchants the wearer with sparkling reflections of light.
This bracelet took 17 years of development until it was finally perfect. Discover the secrets of the Wellendorff manufactory!
Goldsmiths all over the world have always strived to develop jewellery clasps that are easy to open and secure when closed. Using flexible gold, Wellendorff has succeeded in producing an 18-karat gold bracelet that doesn’t even require a clasp.
The main challenge facing the Wellendorff goldsmiths was crafting the bracelet in such a way that it delicately returns to its original shape each time it is put on and taken off. Exceeding the physical limits of 18-karat gold’s elasticity is akin to a technical miracle. But after a long development period, the solution was discovered: the gold rope’s interior – its core – was redesigned to ensure it remained flexible and at the same time highly resilient.
The EMBRACE ME Brilliance of the Sun bracelet pays tribute to the Wellendorff “Brilliance of the Sun” gold rope generation. Two delicately sparkling, silky soft gold strands are wound into bold loops. Jewellery connoisseurs have even called it “the world’s finest bracelet”.
In keeping with the philosophy of Genuine Values, each bracelet is signed with the exclusive trademark – the symbol of German-made goldsmithing par excellence.
Wellendorff has succeeded in solving a millennia-old problem in the history of jewellery: for the first time ever, bracelets made from 18-karat gold can be placed around the arm without any need for a clasp. And, as if by magic, they then return to their original shape.
Inspired by a very personal love story, the Wellendorff bracelets in flexible gold were created and are described by jewellery connoisseurs as “the world’s finest bracelets”.
