Best of the Best 2011: Jewelry Collections: Hemmerle

The Munich-based jeweler Hemmerle (+49.89.24.22.600, www.hemmerle.com) stands apart for its fearless combinations of exceptional diamonds and gemstones with ordinary metals such as brass and aluminum. Its pared-down designs recall Germany’s Bauhaus movement, and standouts include a sparkling white diamond ring and bracelet set in white gold with a stainless-steel overlay for an industrial-looking finish, and a large, mouthwatering cherry-red rubellite ring set in 18-karat gold with a burnt copper overlay.
