Ranked among the key figures in the contemporary jewelry realm, Gerd Rothmann’s name has become synonymous with the impression of the skin- primarily the fingerprint, translated into gold or silver.

The 1999 necklace “Mit dem Künstler Daumen (With the Artist’s Thumbs)” embodies a timeless form. The single strand of circles cascades sensitively around the neck, the individual elements raised to cast a shadow underneath. Closer observation reveals that each unit is a beautiful gold fingerprint. This necklace is accompanied by a signed display platform. A similar example resides in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum.

Also available as a commission made with your own imprints.
