City Guides

A Jewellery Shopping Guide to BERLIN

Shopping for jewellery in Berlin? We provide you here the list of the best addresses in town, from affordable high street chic to the more exclusive luxury proposals.

Oranienburgerstrasse | Photography: Pop Up Uau

The first in a series of upcoming jewellery shopping guides here at Pop Up Uau and starting off proudly with Berlin, a city that in recent years has been steadily positioning itself as one of Europe’s dynamic creative hubs due to its energetic contemporary arts, music and fashion scene. Jewellery, though a scene smaller in comparison, is by no means an exception when it comes to discovering great designs and places to shop, and this guide is here to show what this fantastic city has to offer.

It is our purpose to provide a list diverse enough to suit distinct budgets, style preferences and retail experiences/expectations. All the shops featured, distinct in many aspects as they indeed are, have nevertheless in common a consistent approach to design and/or buying and curating jewellery, meaning that they are doing a substantial contribution not only to the local jewellery scene, but also to the discipline in itself by showcasing continuously outstanding work within very appealing retail concepts. Besides, from a purely brand perspective, all of them possess strong business identities and have earned a reputation among their peers in their particular niche market.

Ticking several boxes at once, from the quality and diversity of the designs to the customer experience one can find in-store, these shops are an optimal choice for your jewellery buys. And, if you take the time to get to know some of the people behind these endeavours, you will surely share our pleasure to acknowledge how passionate they all are about their subject.

Note: appearance is in random order and does not suggest any preferences from Pop Up Uau or any particular ranking criteria – we do love them all.

1. OONA GALLERY

Located at the Auguststrasse in Mitte, one the most lively neighbourhoods for Berlin’s contemporary art scene, OONA is an art jewellery gallery founded in 2000 by Anna Schetelich, who is still nowadays responsible for curating the exhibitions and managing the renowned jewellers her gallery represents such as the duo PE/AH, Svenja John, Petra Zimmerman and Benedikt Fischer among many others. OONA became known for its special choice of international artists and designers and the often experimental character of the objects shown in terms of innovative compositions and materials used. The gallery offers a wide and light space for solo and curated group shows, and the majority of works are displayed openly on top of low height showcase furniture which we find to be very convenient for a proper appreciation of the great pieces always being exhibited here.

3. RENÉ TALMON L’ARMÉE

A fine taste for retail interiors and a jewellery style that skillfully pulls stunning textures and shapes out of silver metal were the reasons to include René Talmon L’Armée’s shop-atelier in Mitte as a recommended destination for your jewellery buys. Truly a delight to walk in, the intimate low lights, dark-toned furnishings/displays and the welcoming solid wood jewellers bench strategically located at the entrance – on which the designer himself often sits to work – create a rather warm and unique shopping experience that you wouldn’t want to miss.

5. ANTIQUE VINTAGE JEWELLERY OLIVER RHEINFRANK

Oliver Rheinfrank opened his gallery two years ago after a professional path made in media and fashion styling from where his passion for vintage jewellery emerged. A specialist in his area, which includes Art Nouveau, Victorian and the Edwardian jewellery periods, the retail concept of a chic antiquarian invites with its sober and polished interiors to stay longer with the pieces and learn some of its history. And there is indeed plenty to tell. Horn carved Art Nouveau necklaces, steel Victorian pieces worked to impressive brilliances or the uses of the jet stone are some of Rheinfrank’s favourite moments to be found here. All items original and exclusive, no replicas and the guarantee that you will bring a piece of knowledge with you.
