NOT AN AVERAGE JEWELLER BUT CRAFTMANSHIP WITH A MODERN TWIST
THE DUO BEHIND
HUIS PAUWELS SPAENJERS
© Frank Gielen
The Belgian designers duo Audi Pauwels and Kitty Spaenjers are the beating heart of Huis Pauwels Spaenjers.
In their contemporary goldsmith workshop in the centre of Hasselt, technique and craftsmanship is the main issue. They design minimal, modern jewelry made with sustainable materials.
Audi is the creative mastermind and sketches the designs in aquarelle. Kitty is an expert in technique and forgery. Almost three decennia after the start up of Huis Pauwels Spaenjers, together they are is still a successful formula, which has expanded with a team of highly qu goldsmiths.
OUR JEWELLERY IS MINIMAL, MODERN AND TIMELESS.
THEY ARE DESIGNED AND CRAFTED TO BE PASSED ON FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT.
The majority of our jewelry collection is designed and manufactured in our own workshop. All our jewellery pieces are foreseen with a master- and carat-certification stamp. They represent quality craftsmanship.
The collection grows organically. We don't design per season and we don't follow trends. This results in a continuous flow in our collection.
Feel free to come and discover our designs and workspace in our store in the centre of Hasselt.
Our motto is: "every ring can be a wedding ring, as long as you wear it with love and treasure it for the rest of your life." In our workshop, we make custom-made rings for engagements and weddings. We have selected some designers who are specialised in wedding bands. Discover our broad range of original wedding bands and matching engagement rings.
