CADEAUX JEWELRY was founded in Germany 1975 to create a jewelry identity that conveys personality and continues to evolve with developments in art, culture, techniques and materials, maintaining originality and authenticity.
German sculptor and goldsmith Evert Hofacker established CADEAUX JEWELRY with a purpose to create a jewelry identity individual to the wearer. He invented the Two-Prong-Setting, an innovation he patented in 1977. His creations captured the spirit of an era characterised by free-form, an influence known particularly in music. The style is admired by collectors and designers, notably in the designs Jazz II (pic.).
From 1975 until 1999 CADEAUX JEWELRY marketed its products in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland through independent retailers, and worldwide through events in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and the United States.
In the 1980s CADEAUX JEWELRY softened its design introducing the life-line concept and organic forms, including the Ginkgo leaf brooch in 18 Karat gold, representing a symbol of harmony, love and everlasting values.
The Ginkgo leaf picks up on the symbolism of Ginkgo biloba, known as the leaf of the Maidenhair tree, an ancient species over 300 million years old, a living fossil native to Asia and with a history of endurance, hence a symbol of longevity. Some trees find their way to Europe in the 18th century, some particularly adorn Weimar, home of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller and Johann Sebastian Bach. The Ginkgo’s bilobed or split leaf moves Goethe to see it as an icon of duality, of two-in-one and one-in-two, a symbol of harmony and love. In 1815 he devotes a poem to the Ginkgo leaf, one of his most adored love poems.
In 1990 CADEAUX JEWELRY introduced a design which is purist and modern with distinct lines. The designs by CADEAUX JEWELRY preceded a style that by the turn of the millennium dominated modern jewelry design. The most significant creations belong to the Moderne series and include Hamburg and Berlin rings and bangles.
In the new millennium CADEAUX JEWELRY explores the growing desire for self-expression. Hedonism, emotion and tactility materialise to communicate both to the wearer and to the outside. CADEAUX JEWELRY builds an iconography onto its modern base, fusing gemstones and symbolisms into a jewelry identity marked by expressiveness.
