RENÉSIM’s origins go back to the French jewellery designer René Sim Lacaze, who between 1920 and 1970 set the French and thus the world-wide standards for haute joaillerie.
His grandson Maximilian Hemmerle, still inspired today by his grandfather’s designs and comprehensive knowledge of gemstones, founded RENÉSIM in 2010 together with Georg Schmidt-Sailer. The company, which has its headquarters in the heart of Munich’s Brienner quarter, was the first on-line jeweller in Germany. Hemmerle’s father, Franz Hemmerle, likewise a jewellery designer and an internationally respected authority on jewellery design, supports his son with his specialist knowledge and in the company’s ongoing development.
Thus not only does the spirit of French haute joaillerie, at perhaps its most distinguished time, live on in RENÉSIM, but also the tradition of the German jeweller family Hemmerle in its fifth generation. The developments that René Sim Lacaze set in motion at the beginning of the 20th century are being continued. The tones of his early sketches and designs still resound today in the numerous bracelets, earrings and chains, and determine the special character of RENÉSIM.
