Born in 1866 in Raadvaad, a small settlement north of Copenhagen, Denmark, Georg Jensen was a silversmith and sculpture ahead of his time in both trade and skill. Discovering his call in life at an early age, he completed is training as a sculptor in 1892 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Georg spent the years after this accomplishment honing his craft whilst travelling the world, first working with ceramics before moving turning to silver in 1904. It wasn’t long after this discovery that he opened his own forge in central Copenhagen where he mastered his profession and began to gain widespread recognition for his expertly crafted art deco jewellery.
On the back of this success, Georg opened stores across Europe including Stockholm, Berlin, Paris and London and in 1924 the very first US store opened in New York. Georg Jensen continued to build the legacy of the globally celebrated brand until his death in 1935 and it has continued to blossom and grow in the many years since. Still encapsulating the original designer’s undying spirit and unique sense of quality and craftsmanship, the Georg Jensen brand works with numerous top artists and designers in the industry to create exceptional jewellery, homeware and gifts to allow the silversmith’s vision to live on.
