Finest German Jeweler since 1893 comes to San Francisco

BY Glenden Hess - July 14, 2016


More demand from U.S. based clientele allowed this new exclusive shop to open in The Ritz-Carlton of San Francisco, according to fourth generation owner Christoph Wellendorff. The new store will debut a special edition San Francisco ring which features an intricate silhouette of the beloved Golden Gate Bridge.

As a special bonus, the store will also play host to the rarely-showcased Wellendorff Golden Belt, woven from an immense four miles of 18k gold filament. A jeweler to royalty for over a century, and the finest German jeweler since 1893; Wellendorff comes to the U.S. with this new boutique after great successes with store openings in Europe, China, and Japan.

Wellendorff is home to the signature Diamond W and new, colorful A Day by the Sea collection which was inspired by the water, sky, and waterfront. Classics abound throughout this new collection and the Golden Treasure amulet features the famous Wellendorff Rope engraved into embedded topaz.
