In 1980 Walter Wallnöfer established his goldsmith business, Goldschmiede Wallnöfer. Both business locations, in Völs am Schlern/Fiè allo Sciliar and in Kastelruth/Castelrotto are run as a family business involving Walter’s daughter Karin and his wife Marianne. Walter and Karin share their passion for opals because of its decorative qualities, its spectre of colours and the way it reflects the light. Opal represents the love of life and creativity, both features that characterise Walter’s and Karin’s attitude towards life and work.
All artefacts originating in the Goldschmiede Wallnöfer reflect their creativity and their love for detail as well as an excellent instinct for the craftmanship of form and the proportion of precious metals and decorative stones. Customers who would like to express their personality in the realisation of a particular decorative piece are welcome to discuss their ideas with Walter and Karin.
Goldschmiede Wallnöfer also specialise in the inclusion of their customers’ own jewellery in their work. The Goldschmiede’s reputation for very special and unique pieces of jewellery extends far beyond the holiday region of the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi.
