"Purity, sincerity and a surprising combination of materials shape the course of Helena Rohner’s designs."

Helena Rohner is a Spanish jewellery and home décor designer based in Madrid. Her stylish boutique is located in the 19th-century apartment building at Calle Almendro in the Latin Quarter (Barrio de La Latina). Unique pieces for women, men and children, made of silver and gold, some set with wood, ebony, porcelain or colourful stones. “They are made to be worn, to adapt to your body, to be comfortable, well made and not trendy.” - says the designer.

Rohner was born in the Canary Islands and educated at the London School of Economics. Between high school and college, she spent a year in Florence, where she got interested in jewellery. Her style is simple yet very elegant. “Jewellery is a question of light, the light you add to your body.”

La Latina is located in the heart of old Madrid. It is a charming district with narrow streets and old buildings, famous for its outdoor flea market "El Rastro", where you can buy a great variety of products - both new and used. El Rastro takes place every Sunday from 9am to 3pm. Many bars in this area (especially along the Cava Baja Street) serve fantastic tapas.
