Bucherer Fine Jewellry: A Reputation of Innovation and Adventure

Bold colors, delicate craftsmanship, and a grounding in shared history set Bucherer Fine Jewellery apart.

Bucherer Fine Jewellery Lacrima
Since 1888, Bucherer has taken its keen eye for craftsmanship and innovative design and applied it to the radiant world of fine jewelry. They have created collections that capture the natural beauty of rare quality gemstones and emphasize the cutting edge of gemology. Bucherer High Jewellery creates a further distinction in quality by offering pieces that elevate the craft of jewelry-making to an unparalleled expression of personality.

The women behind Bucherer High Jewellery

Bucherer High Jewellery pays tribute to two impassioned women: Carl F. Bucherer’s wife, Louise, and their daughter-in-law, Wilhelmina. Louise, who opened the first Bucherer Boutique for watches and jewelry with her husband in 1888, was integral to the company’s success. Since the beginning of the Bucherer brand, she was a champion of the jewelry collections within the business, lending her keen eye and natural taste to the selection.

Wilhelmina, or Mina to friends, was married to Carl and Louise’s son, Carl Edward Bucherer. She harnessed her entrepreneurial instincts to help her husband and his brother expand the brand internationally. Her cosmopolitan taste and savvy business sense were integral to the burgeoning business. She also took a special interest in sourcing materials for gemstones. She could often be found on expeditions around the world to find the rarest and most exquisite gemstones to include in their jewelry, until her untimely death in a shipwreck on route to South America.

The integral contribution of these two women is honored by Bucherer Fine Jewellery by capturing their cosmopolitan taste and adventurous spirit in each exquisite piece. Both women pushed beyond the bounds of traditional expectations set for them. This daring independence and passion is the inspiration behind Bucherer High Jewelry.
