What does Almadin stand for? For us Almadin stands for art. Our home, the Italian Dolomites, are our inspiration. The name cames from the precious stone Almandine. We opened our store first in 1994. The store is still the same family business as it was in 1994, just with a bigger family. Our goldsmith Andreas Runggaldier is an expert in his field. Since 2009 he is the expert of Italy and judge at the World Skills. Thomas G., one of the candidates he coached won the bronze medal in 2009 in Calgary. Since 2016 we moved to the heart of Ortisei, the biggest village of the Val Gardena valley. Our ladin culture is since our founding a big inspiration and it’s a part of every decision we made. It’s a simbol of our valley and of our brand. In 2018 we opened our online-shop, trying to spread our values with our Jewellery in the whole world.
