- German Design Award 2018 -

The jewelry manufactory in the southern Black Forest has won three awards for particularly inspired designs.

The German Design Awards are presented by the German Design Council as an accolade for unique design trends. Winning no fewer than three awards, the BERND WOLF manufactory near Freiburg earned major recognition from the high-profile jury of international experts.

Our Here Comes the Sun design line and our Leilana jewelry set were both selected as “Winner” in the Luxury category. Our Yanizzi jewelry set received a “Special Mention” for particularly creative aspects or solutions.

The German Brand Awards are bestowed as recognition for trailblazing innovative projects and products, as well as their manufacturers and designers on both the German and international design scenes.

The German Design Council, Germany’s leading authority on brands and design, was established in 1953 as a foundation in response to an initiative from the German Bundestag.

Here comes the sun... – selected as “Winner” at the 2018 German Design Awards!

This elegant collection’s design constitutes a superlative interpretation of the sun’s thematic potency.

The sun is an important leitmotif of the BERND WOLF collection. Starting from the eye-catching Soleano set featuring zirconia arranged in a sunburst pattern, plus multi-strand cord necklaces enhanced with small cultured pearls, coral or turquoise all the way through to bracelets incorporating little sun discs, an entire jewelry family celebrates the “Here comes the sun …” theme. So every day is serenely suffused with sunshine. The hallmark of BERND WOLF’s jewelry is the brushed 24-carat gold plating that lends each creation a unique aura connoting the sun.

The jurors’ statement

This elegant collection’s design constitutes a superlative interpretation of the sun’s thematic potency. Precious materials like zirconia and gold have been combined to form harmoniously elegant entities that, as is aptly expressed by the collection’s name, celebrate the sun every day anew.

Yanizzi – honored with a “Special Mention” at the 2018 German Design Awards!

Distinctively designed Y-shaped necklaces crafted from exquisitely shimmering, contrasting materials

Our Yanizzi jewelry set earned a “Special Mention” for particularly creative aspects or solutions.

The Yanizzi jewelry set incorporates small hematine cubes or faceted labradorite or lapis lazuli beads that create an exquisitely vibrant shimmer with their wearer’s every movement. The Y-shaped necklace snugly fits into any décolleté. It is crafted with meticulous attention to detail by the BERND WOLF manufactory’s goldsmiths, who string each of its tiny elements on ultra-fine, flexible chains to ensure a haptically unique jewelry experience. It is optimally complemented by the double-strand Clini pendant earrings and the eponymous delicate, eminently lightweight bracelet. The hallmark of BERND WOLF’s jewelry is the brushed 24-carat gold plating that lends each creation a unique aura connoting the sun.

The jurors’ statement

The most fascinating aspect of this jewelry collection’s underlying design is a sophisticated alternation between contrasting, exquisitely shimmering materials.
