Jewels by Anna Andrén
Circular Jewellery Handmade in Zug
I’m Anna, originally from Sweden, living and working in Switzerland where I am a certified goldsmith.
I design and make jewellery in my studio in Zug using diamonds taken out of Swiss watches from the 70’s, local stones and precious materials recycled in Europe.
I work with customised pieces and small series. My colleague Barbara and I hope you will enjoy our carefully curated website and would love to hear from you.

BESPOKE NEW AND REDESIGNED JEWELLERY - MADE JUST FOR YOU
AN EXAMPLE OF A REDESIGN
The pictures below, show some of the steps involved in making a commissioned ring: A model made in brass for my customer to review, removing the diamonds from the old gold jewellery brought by my customer, melting the old gold jewellery, making the thread for the ring shank, bending the shank and soldering it together to make one eternal loop, soldering the settings to the shank.
My customer brought me her parents’ wedding rings and three diamonds from her maternal grandmother. Together we decided on the swirly design that you see on the pictures. This design, being elegant and robust at the same time will ensure that my customer can carry the ring for many years to come making it sustainable, not just because of the recycled materials, but also because of the longevity of the design.
