1888 was a really good year for lovers of exquisite jewellery and fascinating timepieces. Why? It was the year the family business Bucherer was founded by Carl-Friedrich Bucherer, great-grandfather of the current owner, and his wife. At the end of the 19th century Switzerland was a popular destination for the well-to-do, and buying at Bucherer was the thing to do, for the jewellery house flourished and quickly made a name for itself as a place to obtain high-quality watches and fine jewellery creations.
Quality and excellence is what prevails, and over the years Bucherer has consolidated its international renown, now selling its superb jewellery creations at the most prestigious locations in Switzerland, Germany and Austria, as well as all over the world. Starting out as a small family business, the company now looks back on one of the longest traditions in the watch and jewellery industry in Europe, also leading the Swiss watch and jewellery retail sector.
In the field of jewellery, 2,000 fascinating, unique pieces, designed and personalized at the individual request of customers, are created at the in-house jewellery workshop alongside Bucherer’s five outstanding jewellery lines every year. And Bucherer’s own watch brand “Carl F. Bucherer,” a fine example of the company’s craftsmanship in the art of watch and jewellery making, is celebrating international success.
Besides their own brand, the assortment of watches on offer at Bucherer’s stores in Germany also comprises a diverse range of renowned luxury brands, such as Patek Philippe, A. Lange & Söhne, Cartier, Chopard, Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC and many more. And with more than one thousand models to choose from, Bucherer very likely boasts the largest selection of Rolex watches in Europe.
With its jewellery line Lacrima, Bucherer continues its long-standing tradition as designer and manufacturer of prestigious jewellery, extending its assortment with an exquisite diamond jewellery line. The in-house jewellery designers have created 25 superb pieces, setting striking precious stones in a delicate design. The drop diamonds in various sizes are cut exclusively for Lacrima.
Consisting of the Basic, Premium and Deluxe model ranges, the line provides the fitting piece of jewellery for every occasion. The exquisite choice of creations, adorned with diamonds in greater or lesser abundance, leaves it up to every woman to express her individual style. To highlight one’s appearance, the precious diamond necklaces are offered with corresponding earrings and matching rings.
Centrepiece of the line is a magnificent necklace, set with over 4,000 diamonds. Such unique pieces of art aren’t just enviably beautiful – they radiate pure emotions.
