Barbara Goldmann

Master Goldsmith

Even as a girl I was fascinated by precious stones and metals and inspired by the desire to become a goldsmith. Through my professional career and experience, I feel well equipped today to competently advise goldsmiths and jewelers.

I try to make my own collections as high quality as possible; I always try to offer new cuts to inspire my customers. But I also offer grinding work according to the customer's wishes, supplement missing, defective corals or make extensions of necklaces.


My priorities:

  • Work exclusively with untreated corals

  • Maintain access to valuable raw materials through direct, friendly trade relations

  • No middlemen, a very lean company structure, thus reasonable pricing

  • Always remain open to discussions concerning ethics, sustainability and the protection ofthe oceans
