Hans Hansen (1884-1940) first started trading in about 1906. By the 1920s Hansen was designing and producing his own line of flatware then later moving on to jewellery. The production of items of jewellery began in earnest in 1932 with a collection designed by his son, Karl Gustav Hansen.

After his father’s death, Karl Gustav Hansen took over the Hans Hansen Silversmithy. Other designers, including Bent Gabrielsen Pedersen and Bent Knudsen also worked for the company, with Allan Scharff as the leading designer from the 1980s. In 1992 the firm joined with the Georg Jensen company.
