Today we are en route to Lake Constance, Germany's largest natural lake. The waters of Rhine River, the longest river in Germany, pass down the majestic Alps into the picturesque 40-mile lake.

As we leave our vehicles, we are struck by the area's unusual warmth, and the large numbers of bird species living near the marshes. Germany is also home to featured jewelry design team Gunter Henrich and Roland Denzel.

Twenty-five years ago, these skilled craftsmen established their company Henrich & Denzel, which quickly became widely known for its excellence in design quality, particularly for their solitaire and wedding rings.

Clean, minimalist creations are the designers' signature, and they take a minimalist approach to materials they use. In most cases, the artisans work exclusively with diamonds, 18-karat yellow and rose gold, and the inherently challenging platinum.

They are one of few jewelers to work with pure platinum. One of the rarest alloys, the designers loves the strength, durability, and the silver-white color of platinum prominently featuring the metal in their collections.

The company creates strong architectural pieces that are classic and timeless. In a playful turn, their Magnuovo Collection features semi-precious stones like gold citrine, aquamarine, and pink tourmaline to offset silky, yellow gold.

Inspired by the beauty of falling, sparkling water the designers created the diamond settings in their Cascade Collection to reflect the flow of this clear liquid; and the simple, smooth curves of a circle inspired their Circolom Collection.

The jewelry firm works exclusively with a few international jewelry retailers including Hamilton Hill Jewelry, Quadrum Gallery, and EC One.
