Trimmed-down pieces of silver and gold sculpture for the throat and fingers. – The Scene
Georg Jensen believed that silver had "a light taken straight from a Danish summer's night." The silversmith opened his workshop in Copenhagen in 1904, and the company that's grown out of it still focuses on sculptural pieces in silver and gold--from timepieces to jewelry to elegant fountain pens. This store carries luxury items from several Danish concerns also owned by parent company Royal Scandinavia, including a porcelain maker and a glassworks.
Anyone familiar with Scandinavian design will enjoy the sweeping curves and spare sensibilities. The "Koppel" necklace looks like sterling silver stars, Dr. Seuss-style. The "Mobious" dangles a sleek pendant from a rubber chain. And the "Fushion" ring mixes 18-karat gold and silver like currents in a river. The gems are less impressive, and unfortunately, the mix of jewelry, porcelain, glass pieces and silk ties is reminiscent of an upscale hotel gift shop.
