Georg Jensen Celebrates Its Female Designers with Capsule Collection by Nanna Ditzel

(PRESS RELEASE) In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8th), Georg Jensen announces the 1st annual celebration of its female designers. To debut this new initiative, they will be re-introducing the designs of the iconic Danish designer, Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005), who gained international fame for her daring and forward-thinking work across furniture, textile, and jewelry design.

Known for her keen interest in materiality and an experimental approach, Ditzel remains one of the most prolific creative minds of the Scandinavian mid-century movement, with countless innovative designs to her name. She was also the first woman to ever design for Georg Jensen.

Presented as part of the archive collection, with a particular focus on voluminous, show-stopping designs—the Nanna Ditzel capsule collection will include some of her most recognizable designs in silver, as well as some lesser — known pieces in 18kt yellow gold. The sterling silver series will feature two sets of earrings, a brooch, a cocktail ring, a striking oversized bangle, and a bracelet and necklace set, while the gold selection will include earrings and a necklace. The designs reveal Ditzel’s affinity for crafting organic forms that complement the natural shape of the body, while creating striking, sculptural silhouettes that exude the simple elegance that defined the mid-century aesthetic.

The collection will be available for purchase for limited time only throughout 2021.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
