Bernd Munsteiner

I’m trained by my father and my father was also trained by his father so I’m the third generation of stone cutters in our family, now more than 130 years. My apprenticeships were during the beginning of the sixties. It was a time when everyone wanted to change the world. New possibilities were opening. My friends and my colleagues began to see ourselves and the world with different eyes.

First of all you need to be fascinated with crystals. This is so crazy. You look at the stone and you become part of the stone. This starts a completely new way of thinking about crystals, about what to do as a cutter. The fascination with stones is the fire which comes out in different ways. You need to be professional, to understand the crystal systems, to understand the color, all that before you start to cut a stone.

Today our lives are different, architecture is different, music is different, everything is different today, the clothes are different and that means we need to follow a new generation and this includes jewelry design. My time was a little bit wild, a lot of facets and steps. Tom is always telling me less is more. So, of course his cutting style is different, which means completely different optical designs. But, of course he’s trained by me and he is fantastic, with his own style that compliments mine.

1943 Born in Moerschied near Idar-Oberstein; 1957-1960 Trained as a precious stone cutter with Viktor Munsteiner, completed Journeyman exam; 1962-1966 Studied with Prof. Schollmayer and Prof. Ullrich at the school for design, Pforzheim; 1966 completed state examination with title as designer of precious stones and jewelry; 1973 Atelier in Stipshausen near Idar-Oberstein. Member of various national German trad and visual art organizations, concerned with the advancement, promotion and support of contemporary art, material and form; member of "The Guild of Contemporary American Jewelry Design"; Member of "International Jewelry Design Guild Inc."

Bernd’s honors and awards are too numerous to mention. 


Tom Munsteiner

The first thing is to respect nature. Crystals come from the earth and are two-hundred thirteen million years old. If I touch a stone, I touch it with respect, then I’m working with the stone, not against it. That’s the secret.

We are always looking for beauty. Of course we need money but beauty comes first. If we get a customer we have this customer forever. Not because of money, it is because of the with the relationship and our a shared understanding of what we are doing. That appreciation brings us all closer.

You have to trust people. You have to be honest and you have to ask yourself if what you are doing is for beauty first. If you are true to this philosophy – the customers will come. They always have.

1969 Born in Bernkastel-Kues, Germany; 1985-89 Educated as a Lapidary Stone Cutter in the Company of Bernd Munsteiner; 1991 trained as Gemologist; 1993-95 High School of Gemstone and Jewellery Design, Idar-Oberstein; 1995 Master of Gemstone cutting; 1997 Atelier in Stipshausen.

Like his father, Tom’s honors and awards are too numerous to mention.


Tom and Bernd are supported by Jutta Munsteiner a master goldsmith that creates many of their finished pieces.



Gold, Platinum and Other Precious Metals and Gems

Most fine gold jewelry may be cleaned simply using warm water and nonabrasive soap using a small bristle brush such as a soft child’s toothbrush to remove solid substances lodged to the surface. Rinse in warm water, dry and polish with a soft cloth.

An ultrasonic cleaner can be used, except for items with aquamarines, emeralds, opals, and pearls. Jewelry with aquamarine, emeralds, opals, and pearls should be cleaned very carefully with soap and water.

Take Simple Precautions

Fine jewelry is durable, but not indestructible. We recommend not wearing your fine jewelry weightlifting, heavy lifting, playing golf, landscaping, gardening, horseback riding, in the pool or spa. Chlorine is toxic for many metals.
