The Many Facets of Czech Jewelry

Czech may be most famous for its beer, but there’s certainly more to this country than its Pilsner.

Majestic castles. Cultural sites. Picturesque views. All these make Czech a great destination for a memorable vacation.

Not only that, it’s also the perfect place to get jewelry—whether it’s fine jewelry, vintage Czech, Bohemian jewels, or costume jewelry. Czech is known for its:

Rich History. Jewelry making has been a long-standing tradition in the Czech Republic. As early as the 9th century, Czechs have been crafting the finest gold jewelry mounted with valuable precious stones. Until today, the country boasts of excellent craftsmanship in its jewelry production.

Exquisite Gems. Nature has blessed Czech with exquisite gems shaped amidst its majestic mountains. It’s a rich wellspring for gems like rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and Bohemian garnet. It’s also well-known for being the lone source of moldavite, a dark green gemstone born from a meteorite millions of years ago.

Fineness Hallmarks. Hallmarking indicates the purity of precious metals and guarantees their credibility. Czech has stringent hallmarking controls to ascertain and verify the fineness of precious metals. Each piece is hallmarked only after x-raying and assaying. These inspections are carried out only by the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Assay Office. At Ioola, we adhere to this regulation so you’re assured of the quality of our creations.

With such rich history and resources, you’ll surely find both vintage and avant-garde jewelry in Czech. However, make sure to buy only from reputable shops and dealers. Keep in mind that legitimate jewelers will always issue a certificate of authenticity.
