Since 1996 the goldsmiths’ atelier owned by Philipp and Ulrike Arakelian at the centre of the health resort Igls, high above Innsbruck, has been producing unique jewellery.
High-quality colourful gems and diamonds, combined with platinum and gold, are put in the limelight here. The design is timeless and classy; the unique gems underline the wearer’s beauty with their extraordinary splendour.
The craftsmanship is unequalled and shows a lot of passion for detail – something that is confirmed by a nomination for the Austrian National Award.
