The Danish scene has long been associated with the Scandinavian Jewellery embodied by its leading figure, goldsmith Georg Jensen, and designers such as Arne Jacobsen or Swedish jeweler Vivianna Torun who have both contributed to giving this aesthetic an international outreach. While this jewellery, then almost exclusively in silver, with its resolutely minimalist style had a profound and lasting influence on jewellery design throughout the 20th century, particularly in the United States, this idea of a distinctly Danish aesthetic no longer reflects the reality of this scene.

The most eminent players in contemporary Danish jewellery have certainly taken on board a number of the values embodied by Scandinavian or Nordic jewelry, such as respectful work with materials and undeniable technical rigor, but by opening up to outside influences, they have revitalized creation, to the point of making it one of the most dynamic and diversified crucibles of the moment. Through the works of these five confirmed artists, this exhibition gives a glimpse of the richness of Danish creation, oscillating between the mystical minimalism of Per Suntum and the caustic vein of Marie-Louise Kristensen's narrative jewellery.
