Footnotes

  • Founded in Frankfurt in 1879, Koch were German jewellers recognised for their exceptional Belle Époque jewels.

    By the turn of the century Koch were producing jewels of exquisite craftsmanship for a clientele that included the German Imperial Family, the Russian Czar, European royals, aristocrats and international industrialists.

    Often unsigned, early 20th century jewels by Koch are highly sought after today and this delicate necklace offered for sale displays the impressive craftsmanship associated with Koch during its zenith.
