Ilse Ebert of Manu Schmuck realised at an early stage that many women shared her passion for modern jewelry but could not afford to buy expensive pieces. To this day, Manu Schmuck has stayed true to its principle of ‘sophisticated design at affordable prices’. Manu uses rubber, ceramics or carbon in combination with silver and gold in order to bring simplicity and expressive design together. The desired understated look is often achieved using matte surfaces and oxidized silver. Johannes Weege, second-generation director of the company, explains, “We believe in authentic design rather than flashy luxury”. The collection, comprising approximately 300 pieces of jewelry, is regularly updated with new designs in Spring and Autumn.
