BOLTENSTERN since 1964 and until today - from the introduction of the technique of hammered gold by Sven Boltenstern to Marie’s world’s first directly 3D printed collection in Gold and Silver; the technique is different, but the intention remains: create wearable pieces of art that suit the human body.
The Heritage collection is an ode to the past, while the Resonance collection is an insight into the future of fine jewellery, which BOLTENSTERN is shaping day by day with this exciting journey. The fine hammered gold is both archaic and gracious while the 3D printed precious metal is both gracious and innovative.
The hammered technique for fine jewelery is a craftsman method to mold gold or silver into a detailed piece of work. This technique allows the goldsmith to shape structures with a hammered texture, opening a a diversity of expressions and enables to create unique jewelry pieces. Sven Boltenstern, Marie's father, was a master of the hammered technique, which made every of his pieces a unique experience.'
