Our history

A family story


Company foundation

When Gerhard Fritsch and his wife Andrea founded the company in Munich in 1991, they had big dreams. They also had a burning passion for jewelry and style and an affinity for art and architecture. This was also fueled by Gerhard Fritsch's enthusiasm for the masterpieces of the Renaissance, which he had internalized during his semesters as a guest in Florence... and by the memory of the lavish baroque church decorations that he had been able to admire and touch as a child in Bavaria. Added to this were industry knowledge, courage and, of course, the support of his wife, who is still at his side both privately and professionally.


Own factory

Since 2010, we have been producing all of our products in our own factory, a development that emerged from the company history of Andrea and Gerhard Fritsch, who once started trading. In our factory, we attach great importance to constant growth and maintaining our high quality standards. This in-house production allows us to respond flexibly to challenges and to map the entire jewelry development process internally. This vertical integration not only gives us control over every phase of production, but also enables us to deliver innovative designs and high-quality products with a consistently high level of quality. Our factory is the heart of our company and a guarantee of excellence and authenticity in every piece of jewelry we create.


New company headquarters

A highlight of the company's history to date was the construction of a representative new domicile in Inning am Ammersee, a modern "palazzo" with a contemporary energy concept. The perfect location for what is currently Bavaria's only jewelry manufacturer. At first glance, a no-frills cube that references the architectural style of historical palazzi through almost imperceptible indentations on the facade. Built according to the plans of Gerhard Fritsch himself, who also realized an ecological showcase project. It is the first building in Bavaria to be built using solid wood technology and, behind its white facade, offers a healthy living atmosphere as a plus-energy wooden house.


Billion Dreams Release

The Billion Dreams collection, especially our Dream Globes, is the result of five years of intensive research and development. Every detail, from the patented liquid to the specially cut casing to the innovative assembly technology, has been carefully designed and perfected. Inspired by fairytale worlds, fantasies and the deepest desires, this jewelry line embodies pure fascination and represents a magical reinterpretation of the classic snow globe. But a closer look reveals a new dimension of goldsmithing


2nd generation

Since 2020, Theresa and Florian Fritsch, two of the three children of the company founders Andrea and Gerhard Fritsch, have enriched the family business and made a significant contribution to its continued success. With their commitment and expertise, they have primarily driven the internationalization and digitization of the company. Their innovative approaches and entrepreneurial spirit have helped to prepare the company for future challenges and strengthen its presence on the global market. Their involvement continues the family tradition while ensuring a modern orientation that will lead the company into a successful future.


Love Lock Release

The Love Lock collection represents a milestone in our technological jewelry development. The centerpiece of this collection is our CAPOLAVORO Love Lock, a unique symbol of love protected by an individual 6-digit opening code. This personal code can represent, for example, the name of your child or the date of your wedding and gives each Love Lock a distinctive personality and deep meaning. With this innovative locking technology, we create not only an exquisite piece of jewelry, but also a symbol of the unique connection and special moments you share with your loved ones.
