About Market12

Company background

Welcome to Market12, an on-line jewelry store specializing in uniquely designed silver, gold and rose jewelry. These pieces originate from a renowned manufacturer and distributor in Germany called Perlkoenig. This company has provided necklaces and earrings as singles or sets since 1993. Perlkoenig showcases their products online and at several Christmas markets throughout Europe. Now these special pieces are available in North America at very affordable prices.

On a visit to Mainz, Germany in 2017, Kathleen Graeser attended the local Christmas market where she was introduced to Perlkoenig’s products. She was so impressed with the quality and designs, Kathleen developed a plan to distribute the product in North America. In 2018, she began selling these pieces online and at Christmas Markets and holiday shows in the United States. The name Market12 comes from the recognition of the many Christmas Markets held around the world and ­12, stands for the month of December, the time when these are held.

Market12 looks forward to maintaining their relationship with Perlkoenig in the future. The German company’s long history in designing, manufacturing, and marketing this jewelry has proven successful in Europe and will be equally as popular in North America. Plans for growth are already underway and the future looks very exciting.
