Ernst is one of Germany's oldest jewellers still in existence today. The firm was founded in October, 1852 by decree of the Duke Adolph of Nassau, the first owner being Carl Philipp Ernst. Subsequently, the leadership of the company was assumed by the brothers Carl Matthias and Otto Franz Ernst. In 1931, Carl Matthias moved on to create his own firm and the family business remained in the hands of his sibling Otto Franz with locations in the Wilhelmstrasse and in the centre of Wiesbaden. One of his most interesting tasks consisted of carrying out a full valuation of the jewels of the late King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia. The firm later passed into the hands of Wolfgang Berger-Schaefer-Ernst.
