Jens Hübschen sets out to retrace the history of the stones, in the gemstone world of Idar-Oberstein in the rocky Nahe region.
I have said it time and again: Idar-Oberstein is one of the most beautiful places in Germany. And gemstone fans are particularly likely to agree with that. After all, my home town was the cradle of the gemstone industry! A team from the German TV station SWR recently set out to retrace that fascinating history. For what began centuries ago with the first agates, found in volcanic rock, and rapidly brought forth the very best gemstone cutters and goldsmiths, has also managed to make a successful transition into the modern age. But how is that possible? In this documentary, I open the doors of my treasure chamber and chat a little about my fascinating world of gemstones – and about my beloved Idar-Oberstein.
