My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure from Qatar. The Middle East is an inspiration for fashion stories because of its unique oriental character that adorns it. That’s why I decided to show you a new watch from the elegant and refined Etrier line of the famous jeweler from Luxembourg – Schroeder Joailliers 1877.
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 jewelry house also has its jewelry and watch workshop in Paris.
The pictures for today’s fashion story were created in the capital of the State of Qatar – Doha. At the very beginning, I would like to thank the Visit Qatar for the warm invitation and hospitality.

The story of Schroeder jewelry began back in 1860 when Mr. Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his training in London and the United States. A few years later when he returned to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his goldsmith’s shop, in the same place where you can still find the Schroeder jewelry house today. Mr. Lambert Schroeder, in addition to being a skilled trader, translated his creativity and passion into the core values of the work policy of the Schroeder jewelry company. He had a great passion for making quality gold jewelry and was an ambitious innovator significantly ahead of his time.
His only son, Ferdi Schroeder, learned the engraver’s trade in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it during the two world wars. His great skill in his art earned him the prestigious title of chief supplier to the court, which the Schroeder jewelry house still holds today. During 1979, the company was joined by Pierre Rossi, Lambert Schroeder’s grandson and current director of Schroeder Jewelry. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry expanded internationally by deploying to various markets and participating in various exhibitions and fairs on five continents.
The family tradition continues, so that at the head of the Schroeder jewelry company, in addition to Mr. Pierre Rossi and his wife, their daughters Anni and Sophie were also involved in making business decisions. This fifth generation continues the family tradition that is associated with traditional approach, knowledge and creativity.
Schroeder Jewelry Maison has a diverse range of sophisticated luxury jewelry, watches and fashion accessories for her and him, which will complement your style and bring freshness to your everyday life.
Today I present to you a new, redesigned look of the dial, which is the result of the creative skills of co-owner Gaby Schroeder, who, in cooperation with the most eminent Swiss manufacturers, created a new look for the Etrier watch collection of the Schroeder jewelry house.

Loro Piana is an Italian company specialised in clothing and textile products. This fashion house is considered the largest producer of cashmere and also the world’s largest artisanal company processing the luxury fiber.
The Loro Piana company has three divisions (textile divisions): a division that deals with the production of high-quality materials using precious fibers such as cashmere and baby cashmere, vicuna, linen and merino wool, a division that deals with the creation of luxury fashion items (production and distribution of men’s, women’s clothing, footwear and fashion accessories) and the interior design department – production and distribution of interior design products.
Originally from Trivero, the Loro Piana family started their family business in the wool trade at the beginning of the 19th century. In the second half of this century, the family moved its activities to Valsesia and founded the Fratelli Lora e Compagnia woolen mill, and then the Zignone & C. woolen mill in Quarona at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineer and founder of the Loro Piana brand, Mr. Pietro Loro Piana founded the company Loro Piana & C. in Quarona in 1924. Soon this company will celebrate its jubilee 100th anniversary of its existence and it will be an extraordinary celebration of the “first fashion century” of this extraordinary fashion house, which I am immensely looking forward to!
Mr. Franco Loro Piana (grandson of Mr. Pietro Loro Piana), after taking over the leadership of the company in the 1960s, started exporting high quality fabrics to Europe, America and Japan. He significantly expanded the markets in which Loro Piana began its new business ventures.
