Lorenz Bäumer

Lorenz Bäumer is the visionary jeweler who brought together poetry and high-calibre engineering to create unique custom-made pieces.

Harbouring a passion for fine jewellery from an early age, it was through perseverance and hard work that Lorenz Bäumer fought his way into the industry, gaining recognition from international brands like Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels. His vision for designing affordable custom-made jewellery has helped shape his image as a visionary in the world of high-end retailers and make him a beloved designer to a variety of high-profile celebrities.

His sense of curiosity and flexibility allows his work to acquire a dazzlingly eclectic allure of all the places he’s travelled to and lived in, turning it into a real celebration for the senses. The pieces boast unique combinations of materials – like titanium and diamonds – which is a bold and daring statement in an otherwise conservative field. The result pays off with creations that are eye-catching with their unorthodox charm and strong presence – something that appeals to the confident modern woman.

Diamond pieces intertwined with semi-precious stones such as tourmaline or amethyst turn out to be an exceptionally creative and successful idea and Bäumer’s pieces attract worldwide attention and recognition thanks to their otherworldly appeal. Drawing inspiration from many places – his jewellery makes a statement with quality and subtle presence rather than exuberant flamboyance with the perfect example being the infamous tiara designed for the wedding of Princess Charlene of Monaco. A true vision in diamond and white gold, it features nine rows of beautiful pear-shaped diamonds in a beautiful nod to the gracious movement of the waves of the ocean.

The small size of the brand has allowed it certain flexibility and irreverence throughout the years with the focus being on experimenting with the boundaries of creative conduct. Lorenz Bäumer offers a unique approach in dealing with customers, apart from an eclectic style of designs that are beautifully feminine and poetic.
