My dear fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well, healthy and safe, so I think we are all ready for one new fashion story. Today we will talk about the family values and creativity of a traditional jewelry brand that comes to us from the heart of Western Europe – Luxembourg.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a country located between Germany, France and Belgium, which is considered to be one of the richest countries in the world in terms of gross domestic product per capita.
Just make yourself comfortable, relax, grab your favorite sweet treat and drink and our time to enjoy this Friday and weekend time can begin!
It is an interesting fact that Luxembourg has three official languages in this country, Luxembourgish, French and German. The culture of Luxembourg is cultural mix by a centuries-old combination of German and French influences. The country has a population of just over half a million, almost half of whom are foreigners. Luxembourg is both a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, its ruler, Grand Duke Henri, is the only monarch in the world with that title.
Today, I will introduce you to a family jewelry brand that comes from Luxembourg. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it. In addition to its main jewelry store located in the heart of Luxembourg, this jewelery house also has its own jewelry and watch workshop in Paris.
I know that you are used to get know some interesting details about the history of the brand, so let’s start. The story of Schroeder jewelry began back in 1860 when Mr. Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his apprenticeship programs in London and the United States.
A few years later, when he returned to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his own jewellery shop, in the same place where you can still find the Schroeder Maison. Mr. Lambert Schroeder, in addition to being a skilled merchant, appointed his creativity and passion as the basic values of the working value and policy of the jewelry Maison Schroeder. He had a great passion for making quality gold jewelry and was an ambitious innovator significantly ahead of his time.
His only son Ferdy Schroeder learned the engraving craft in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it during the period during the two world wars. His great skill in his art brought him the prestigious title of the Supplier to the Court, which the jewelry house Schroeder still holds today.
During 1979, was the year when Mr. Pierre Rossi, grand-nephew of Lambert Schroeder and current director of the Schroeder Maison joined the company. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry has expanded internationally by deploying in different markets and participating in various exhibitions and fairs on five continents.
The family tradition continues, so that at the board of directors of the jewelry house Schroeder, in addition to Mr. Pierre Rossi and his wife, their daughters Anna and Sophie also got involved in this incredible family business. This fifth generation continues the family tradition that is associated with traditional approach, know-how and creativity.
Today I will show you a new, redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder, who in collaboration with the most eminent Swiss manufacturers created a new look for the Etrier watch collection of the Schroeder Maison. Traditional classics with the best Swiss mechanisms got a new modern outfit!
The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.
There are different models for men in the Etrier collection, the watch I wear today is with a black leather bracelet and a gold color of the case with a diameter of 40 mm. The models in the Etrier collection can be made in leather or metal bracelets, you can see more models at this link.
The coat, turtleneck and the jeans are the gifts from my dear friends from the Brunello Cucinelli. A coat with beautiful details made of leather and processed wood is truly a timeless piece that, due to its incredible design and quality, can be worn by several generations, if properly maintained.
The turtleneck is of a classic cut, a neutral beige color that will serve any fashion combination, there is nothing better than a pleasant touch of cashmere on cold days.
Jeans are a must have piece in my wardrobe, believe me I stopped counting them more, but it is always useful to have a few pairs of jeans as they are great for any occasion, especially if they are in some darker shades.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered a new interesting brand from wonderful Luxembourg. Who knows, maybe the road will take me to this unusual country in the next few weeks, so I will write you an interesting letter about this unusual country. How did you like my outfit today, did you manage to imagine this watch in any fashion outfits of yours?
I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!
I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.
I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and wear a mask.
If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!
With love from Berlin,
