The foundations of Georg Jensen as a company were built in 1904 in Copenhagen, following artist and sculptor, Georg Jensen’s graduation at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1892. Born in 1866, Jensen began training in goldsmithing at the age of just 14 where his apprenticeship with the firm Guldsmed Andersen ended in 1884. He then went on to follow his artistic interests and his clay sculptures were very well received before creating Georg Jensen jewellery pieces.
Renowned for creating some of the most beautiful pieces of jewellery and luxury wristwatches in the world, the company’s aesthetics are brought together by artisanal skill and the finest craftsmanship. Many people wear Georg Jensen jewellery as an expression of their personal taste in jewellery. The creations give a lady’s look identity and a talking point to any outfit they are combined with. The creator of the company itself, Georg Jensen, had a vision to create stunning pieces of jewellery that serve not only as an elegant accent to lady’s attire, but one that doubles up as a functional piece that feels comfortable against the skin also. The Georg Jensen universe has since grown into homeware, and hollowware.
If you consider yourself a collector of Georg Jensen jewellery or have invested in one or two stylish pieces before, you will already be familiar with the manufacturer’s diverse range of designs. Our Berry’s Jewellery online selection showcases some of the company’s most popular collections. These elegant Scandinavian designs span from the likes of the Dew Drop collection, inspired by delicate droplets of water, to creations belonging to the Marcia collection inspired by designer Vivianna Torun's own ring – there is a style and a finish that meets every lady’s need. Georg Jensen has also been renowned for its artistic boldness and certainly had a firm grip on the famous Art Nouveaux style. These recognisable sculpted creations are infused with Danish values of the simplicity of life.
The very first piece of jewellery created by Jensen himself was a belt crafted from silver in 1899. Since then a modern and sophisticated philosophy has followed, along with a huge array of inspiring pieces for combining with daytime wear, elegant evening dresses and professional attire.
