Evert Hofacker

Evert HofackerEvert Hofacker is a professional sculptor and goldsmith of Koblenz, Germany. He established CADEAUX JEWELRY in 1975. His goal was to create a jewelry identity that is individual to the wearer. In this aim he invented a unique method for setting Diamonds, the 2 Prong setting. In 1977 he was granted a patent for this innovation from Deutsches Patentamt [Patentschrift 2531724], affording CADEAUX the exclusive right to use this novel technique. Diamonds are inserted in solid gold and held securely by 2 elongated prongs, enhancing luster and delivering unmistakable CADEAUX character.

Evert’s visionary designs remain in production as part of the 2 Prong collection to this day.
