Coincidences are exceptions in life. Things usually happen for a reason. This is probably why in 1858, company founder Jean Jacques Arbenz established himself in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, where everything indispensable for the production of his discerning jewellery was readily by hand: a notable tradition of craftsmanship aligned with an inspiring environment.
The magnificent location on the Rhine, the medieval town centre, the surrounding natural beauty, the overwhelming power of the Rhine Falls. All this was and is a source of a creative strength which has always inspired the development of exceptional pieces of jewellery. Already in the first half of the 20th century, Fritz Furrer had already dedicated passionately to the business.
In 1943, he joined forces, in business and in life, with Lucienne Jacot from French-speaking Switzerland.Since then, they have built a partnership based on creativity and precision manufacturing that has endured to this day. Today Furrer-Jacot stands for a more than 150-year tradition of craftsmanship for custom-made jewellery, particularly exclusive wedding, engagement and eternity rings. Although the former one-man enterprise has developed into a producer of exclusive jewellery with a world-wide presence, dedication to the highest standards of craftsmanship and distinctive production remains at the heart of Furrer-Jacot’s thoughts and actions.Distributed through a network of exclusive jewellers Furrer-Jacot nowadays is one of the leading companies for exclusive bridal jewellery.
