The Meister company was founded in 1881 by the goldsmith Emil Meister, as the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich still looked like a wide country road lined with trees, with the building of the first street-car lines, the Horse-tram (Rösslitram), started in the Bahnhofstrasse. Since then, the tradition of style, top quality, competence and trust has been upheld in all four companies. The high standard of handcraftsmanship is still maintained in their gold and silver workshops.
During that time the bold minded goldsmith Emil Meister founded in Münsterhof 16 a shop for trading in jewelry and silverware. This flourished during four generations into a powerful company, represented today by three stores at top addresses in Zurich, now selling gold and diamond jewelry, watches, silver and crystal glass objects, porcelain and renowned top-quality brands. Meister is actually one of the best jewelry houses of Zurich.
It is in perfect original condition, with no gemstones replacements and all the reddish vintage patina is intact.
