A love for modernity, the unadorned shape, and artful attention to detail turn each piece of Köchert jewelry into a work of art. The master goldsmiths’ extensive knowledge and expertise and their passion for precious gems guarantee the highest quality.
FOR EMPERORS AND CUSTOMERS WHO ARE KING
Köchert jewelry was founded in 1814, and already in 1831, the business gained the title of “K.u.K. Hoflieferant”, official purveyor to the Imperial Court, with the founder Alexander Emanuel Köchert being appointed court jeweler in 1868.
As the emperor`s personal jeweler, he was also keeper of the royal treasury. It has been the Köchert tradition since then to host renowned artists at the Neuer Markt location’s studio, who, in cooperation with the in-house master goldsmiths, have createdprecious and unique pieces of jewelry – a tradition that to this day, Christoph, Wolfgang and Florian Köchert continue to celebrate. Today more than ever, A. E. Köchert is synonymous with masterful craftsmanship, precious materials, and unique designs that merge classic and modern styles to form inimitable and peerless pieces of jewelry.
Sissis Stars – the stars of Empress Elisabeth count as some of Austria’s most famous pieces of jewelry. “Sissi” used them to decorate her long and gorgeous hair. The majority of those sparkling precious jewels were designed and manufactured for Sissi by the imperial jeweler to the court, Alexander Emanuel Köchert. As an homage to a remarkable woman, the “Stars of Empress Elisabeth” have now been reissued.
FINE THINGS FOR FINE PEOPLE
One of the company’s well-kept secrets is the special knotting technique that lends an extraordinary and intricate elegance to the “Coccinella”-style necklaces and earrings by joining gem orbs of exactly the same size to create a fascinating piece of art.
The main branch of A. E. Köchert jewelry has been at Neuer Markt 15 since 1873, and in December of 2005, a further store was opened at the exclusive Alter Markt 15 in Salzburg.
