When the master goldsmiths at Wellendorff unite two unique developments, the result is something wonderful. In the CROSSOVER necklace, two generations of the gold rope, “Pure Delight” and “Brilliance of the Sun”, come together and transform this piece of jewellery into an exciting and elegant companion. The necklace, which is as soft as silk on the skin, represents a new way of living that promotes the idea of “as well as”, rather than “either-or”.
A gentle sparkle meets silky soft gold, smoothness meets a striking texture: discover the secrets of the Wellendorff manufactory!
The “Brilliance of the Sun” gold rope shines with great luminosity. This captivating play of light is created by small surfaces which reflect the incident light. The goldsmith's technique used to create this effect is, of course, a closely guarded secret of the Wellendorff manufactory.
Two gold ropes from the “Pure Delight” generation inspire a new design vocabulary in the CROSSOVER necklace: the design demonstrates modern clarity and playful lightness.
The Wellendorff alloy is created in the Pforzheim manufactory according to a highly protected family formula. To create this alloy, the master goldsmiths always add two additional parts of fine gold, thereby “over-alloying” the gold and making it even more exclusive.
Behind the delicate and graceful appearance of the iconic Wellendorff rope lies solid 18-karat gold. It’s shaped by hand into a fine yet stable gold wire in the Wellendorff manufactory. But it’s the secret 18-karat gold soul inside that gives the rope its unique flexibility.
The clasp developed by Wellendorff is ergonomically shaped and enables the wearer to easily put on and take off the necklace herself. The sophisticated clasp can withstand a tensile force of up to 60 kilograms and is therefore extremely secure.
It’s the precise winding of the strands that gives the Wellendorff rope its extraordinary fineness, in turn making it uniquely comfortable to wear and preventing hair from getting caught in the necklace. With its timeless and elegant design, the rope makes this necklace a perfect companion for every day and every occasion.
