Georg Jensen are world renowned Danish makers of the finest quality jewellery and other items. They were named after their founder (1866-1935) and were established in Denmark in 1904. They were leading designers in the Art Nouveau period in the early Twentieth Century and later adapted their style to the fashions of the day. After World War 2 they adopted a more modernist style and worked with a number of leading designers many of whom went on to great acclaim as pioneers of the modern Scandinavian style.
