The Masterpiece Collection by First Edition is comprised of the rarest and most historically important jewelry designs created by the artists of the Wiener Werkstätte. The modern style of these objects, with their emphasis on abstract composition and sensuous materials, is strikingly progressive.

The Wiener Werkstätte is known for its high level of craftsmanship. To achieve this level, First Edition contracted an experienced master goldsmith, who after years of research is using the traditional methods and original materials of the era. These jewels are made by hand and may take as many as 150 hours to produce.

Each brooch is a unique and individual work of art.
