Inspired by Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, whose enchanting belt was believed to make her compelling, Wellendorff
created its prestigious Golden Belt for that added attraction and possibly irresistible charm for present-day wearers. Company managing director Christoph
Wellendorff says that the intricate procedure to produce this exciting piece is actually Wellendorff’s
innovation of contributing a third dimension in jewelry making—“feel”—after design and value. A patented, exceptional method is used to create the silky-smooth feel of this alluring 33-inch 18k
golden belt, even without looking at it. The procedure involves two expert goldsmiths working with four miles of gold filament, where one does the weaving, while the other continuously disentangling the 40 gold threads that compose the whole belt. The outcome? An astonishing thing of beauty that is as smooth as silk.
Wellendorff is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.
