use strong precious metals and are often hardened during manufacturing to make them withstand impact. In turn, they can be hard on the skin. If you have sensitive skin, no matter how opulent the jewelry is, you'll be hard pressed to enjoy its elegance while wearing it when you're uncomfortable. Wellendorff
, the luxury German jewelry maker, must be thinking of this situation when it created its Silken Touch, a collection of bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. The surface is smooth and soft, mimicking a silk material. The 18k
gold material is woven into a soft, supple surface and finished in cold enamel, the trademark of Wellendorff
. The result is a jewelry masterpiece that's both impressive to look at and to touch. Wear it on formal evenings without the fear of discomfort.
Wellendorff is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.
