ber for about 12 years now and have one of the most precise printers in the world.”

Clientele Cober and his personnel are invested heavily with the design of their pieces, working with high-end gems and giving a great deal of time and attention to their clientele. “We love to pamper our customers and build a strong relationship with them.” According to the Ossenaar, those who enter his store are there mostly for two reasons: “If they’re from around, they know what we do and ask us to create something unique. If they’re from further away, they usually want something seen in an advertisement and there’s still a good chance we suggest to do a modification to that particular piece of jewellery, making it even more special.” Those who know Cober often have a piece of jewellery from a passed away family member and ask him to create something new out of it. “To work with something that has so much emotion attached, that really is

extraordinary. We film part of the process and share the video to get them even more involved.”

Style Cober defines his style as one that is based around beautifying women. His jewellery is mostly aimed at women, though there are watches for both women and men as well. “Women’s jewellery is a matter of beauty through simplicity. Each body part is a different stage to adorn and what we offer should be durable. I wouldn’t use the word ‘timeless’, because what we create can be classic or contemporary. Especially in the business of wedding rings, we see how young people go for the stark designs, while those over the age of 50 might get married for their second or third time and just want to invest in a beautiful ring instead of a big wedding party.” As for his own personal style, Cober says he loves to work with diamonds. “I’m a gemologist and I’m making sure our stones

come from non-conflict countries. I’ve taken several trips to Asia and been to several mines to see the working conditions. I’m happy to say everything we sell, whether it’s gold, silver or gems, has the certifications of fair trade.”

Future plans Being a jeweller for over 30 years, you would think Cober has done everything he wanted to do, but there are still a few boxes soon to be checked: “I’m presenting a silver collection at the start of December. Finally, there’s silver jewellery that you can wear to the beach without getting ruined. Then there’s the fact there never was a quartz watch in our collection and I’m receiving the glass soon and will start to design a watch around that.” Web: www.cober.nl
