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 mind and sketches the designs in aquarelle. Kitty is an expert in all kinds of techniques concerning jewellery making and goldsmithing. 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 qualified goldsmiths.
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.
A custom design always starts with a conversation in our store. You can make an appointment or just stop by at any given time. A personal designed jewel doesn't cost you anything extra. Thanks to years of expertise, we can guide you to a personal designed piece of jewelry within our corporate identity.
Good to know: the average processing time for a custom design is 4-8 weeks until the finished product.
All the jewelry pieces with our master stamp are designed and manufactured in our workshop. Because of the high quality the next generation will be able to treasure them too. We work with sustainable materials such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The gold and silver we use are 100% recycled in Belgium.
In our shop, you will find a permanent collection of handmade jewellery. These can always be adjusted to your wishes and needs. Since we make everything in our own workshop, we can customize any piece of jewelry. Reuse or up-cycle your very own gold in to one of our designs is certainly an interesting option. Would you like a new design from scratch? We can create a custom designed piece of jewellery. We start with a realistic sketch on your request and are proud to manage your project to a sustainable realization.
Have you lost a loved one and would you like to carry him or her with you forever? We will incorporate the ashes or hair of your loved one into a piece of jewellery.
At Pauwels Spaenjers we have a serene range of mourning jewellery.
We also design tailor-made jewellery to commemorate your loved one. This may be a formal abstraction of the initials or an engraving.

We make the difference with a regular jeweller by manufacturing all our jewellery in our workshop in a traditional way. Over three decades, we have built up a collection that forms the collection of what we offer at Huis Pauwels Spaenjers.
Craftsmanship and tradition are of paramount importance to us. As goldsmiths, we are proud representatives of the 'Handmade in Belgium' HIB-label and recognised as a Belgian craft. In the showcase of our shop, you can watch our team of goldsmiths working with precision and love.
Would you like to take a look behind the workbench? Don't hesitate to contact us for a demo or workshop.
Processing old gold

Choose a model from our collection or we can make a piece of jewellery from your old gold to measure. Recover your old gold or use it as currency.
