Hidden Belgium: Ruys jewellery shop

Hidden Belgium: Ruys jewellery shop

The most beautiful Art Nouveau shop in Antwerp lies in an unlikely location, far from the elegant shopping districts. It dates from 1902 when the jeweller Albert Ruys transformed the family shop where his father had started as a silversmith in 1854.

The new shop, three houses wide, has a beautiful Art Nouveau facade, mosaic floors, carved wood display cabinets and soft lighting.

The family has run the business for five generations, creating beautiful Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewellery for the city’s elite.
