Georg Jensen (1866-1935) Denmark

At just 14 years of age, Georg Jensen began learning the art of goldsmithing in Copenhagen during the late 19th century; despite going on to study fine art and aspiring to become a sculptor, by 1901 Jensen would return to working with precious metals in order to support his family. Jensen soon opened his own workshop in the Danish capital, creating pieces inspired by the Art Nouveau movement. The success of Jensen's creations led to stores being opened in Berlin, London and New York. In 1972, the company was taken over by Danish porcelain manufacturer, Royal Copenhagen. Today, Georg Jensen's jewelry line includes rings, cufflinks and necklaces; popular collections are the dainty 'Dew Drop' collection, the timeless 'Infinity' collection and the sculptural 'Moonlight Grapes' collection. The company also offers watches, homeware and silverware, created by talented Danish silversmiths and designers, such as Henning Koppel and Søren Georg Jensen, the founder's late son.
