Galerie Puur, Rotterdam

What to buy here: A modern interpretation of the internationally renowned goldsmith tradition linked to the history of Dutch jewelry design; contemporary handmade jewelry incorporates both modern and classic materials such as precious and non-precious metals, stones, pearls, crystal, rubber and paper to create gorgeous, one of a kind, timeless pieces. Simple, pure and wearable are the fundamental characteristics of the designs which in turn make any of these pieces an exceptional and excellent gift choice for that special person. Gallery Puur is a gallery and atelier specialized in modern handmade jewelry with an extensive and changing collection displaying the work of several Dutch jewelry designers, alongside their own jewelry collection. The owners, which are likely to be seen working on the atelier through the shop windows, are very welcoming and they offer the possibility to develop custom made jewelry for their clients, and also perform reparations as requested. The gallery/atelier is centrally located, close to the Rotterdam Library and the Blaak station.

Another non-conventional choice is jewelry by Ralph Bakker, who craftfully combines gold, silver and precious gems with enamel and other surprising materials. "My inspirations are the material, the symbolism of a traditional shape or the beauty of a technique" says Bakker, who is equally proficient in traditional goldsmith techniques and the simbolism and minimalism of modern times. Price: 8€ - 800€.
