The famous Danish silversmith Georg Jensen was born in 1866. Georg Jensen, who has an artistic spirit, graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1892 and worked as a porcelain designer in the early years of his career. In 1898 he founded his own pottery workshop. One of his designs was exhibited at the Danish Pavilion in the 1900 World's Fair in Paris and was highly acclaimed. This gave Georg Jensen a reputation both in Denmark and in the international design community.

In pursuit of a more sustainable process, Georg Jensen decided to continue as a silversmith and designer in 1901 and worked with Mogens Ballin, one of the most renowned masters of the time. And in 1904, he founded his own silversmithy in Bredgade, one of Copenhagen's famous streets. With this initiative, the foundation of Georg Jensen, which still carries out its activities with its first-day vision and bearing its name, was laid.

Georg Jensen opened its first store in 1909 in Berlin. Georg Jensen continued to grow in 1912 by opening a larger workshop and store in Copenhagen. Georg Jensen's designs have been exhibited in many exhibitions since the products he created were of beauty and quality that could be included in museum collections, not a home ornament. After the challenging years of the First World War, it made its biggest breakthrough by opening a store in New York in 1924.

Georg Jensen, a brand focused on silver jewelry and silverware, has collaborated with the world's most famous silversmiths. It is possible to feel the Art Nouveau style approach of its founder Georg Jensen in almost all of its products. Since its inception, the brand has honored its founder's manufacturing philosophy and designs functional and beautiful silver jewelry and silverware.

Georg Jensen, one of the most famous silverware brands that have existed for more than 100 years with a production approach that does not compromise on quality, represents the Scandinavian design approach with each product.

With hundreds of designs in fifteen different jewelry and three different watch collections, Georg Jensen adds Danish elegance to the lives of its users.
