The Belgian goldsmith Louis Wolfers founded Wolfers Frères in 1834. Philippe Wolfers, his son, joined his father’s workshop in Brussels in 1875. His initial designs were in the Rococo style, but by 1890 he had begun ascribing to Art Nouveau aesthetics. His creations dating between 1897 and 1905 are stamped “ex [emplaire] unique” to differentiate them from the pieces made by the Wolfers Company. He only created 131 unique pieces. In 1908, he halted his jewellery production to become a sculptor. Since 1987, Patrick Descamps has been managing this prestigious company whose luxurious premises are currently located at 1, Boulevard de Waterloo, in Brussels, Belgium. As well as an exceptional collection of antique jewellery of worldwide reputation, Wolfers also designs custom made contemporary jewellery.
