Statement

Friends of Carlotta was established by Bruna Hauert in 1990. It was under this label that she organised various exhibitions until eventually opening a jewellery gallery of the same name in the heart of Zurich's old town in 1995. Today, Friends of Carlotta is among the leading galleries for contemporary jewellery design. The gallery enjoys great popularity with designers, collectors and jewellery lovers the world over. A permanent exhibition features items by over 80 international designers and offers an enjoyable cross section of contemporary jewellery design.
From inconspicuously subtle, to clear, classic and strict to brimming, voluptuous, colourful and playful – the works on display are made from high-quality and unconventional materials and impress with their original design and high level of execution and finish. The pieces are sometimes crazy but almost always surprisingly comfortable and very wearable. A further unique aspect of the gallery is its incredibly diverse selection of one-of-a-kind wedding bands and partner rings by jewellery designers from all corners of the earth.
 
In recent years, the Friends of Carlotta jewellery gallery has dedicated itself to paving the way for modern jewellery design. This includes the Friends of Carlotta jewellery and fellowship prize that is awarded every two to three years for exceptional works created for a thematic exhibition. This internationally recognized prize is awarded by Bruna Hauert and an independent jury. It is precisely with events such as these demanding thematic exhibitions that Friends of Carlotta inspires and encourages the continuous development of European jewellery culture.
