The art nouveau jewelry selection at Oesterreichische Werkstaetten includes handmade items made in various different materials and inspired by the colours, lines, shapes and ornamentation of Jugendstil (art nouveau). They range from brooches and rings to cufflinks, bracelets and bangles, from simple pendants to complete jewelry sets. Among the many items, there is bound to be something to suit all tastes, whether you prefer more modern, minimalist designs or a classic, ornate style.
Our classic pieces are mostly made of precious materials and may be modest or opulent in style. They often feature a wealth of gold, silver or bronze detail, meticulously made by hand in local workshops. Those who prefer something a little less ostentatious will also find creations by contemporary designers in our online shop and the store at Kaerntner Strasse 6. This art nouveau jewelry is often more discreet. The items may be made using modern techniques such as 3D printing, and simpler colour schemes. Many of the pieces feature classical elements that may well date from the early 20th century, without looking at all dated. In this way, some items combine the traditional and the modern, making them the perfect fit for the Oesterreichische Werkstaetten range.
There can hardly be anywhere else in the world that brings together pieces by different jewelry designers and manufacturers in this way. Many of the products are rare or one-off items which can only be found at Oesterreichische Werkstaetten. Why not take a look for yourself?
All our Jugendstil jewelry is available online or directly from our store at Kaerntner Strasse 6.
