Georg Jensen did not switch to the sterling standard until 1927 although he occasionally made special orders in 925S for the American market much earlier.The artisans had to hand hammer gold ingots and other metals into thin sheets before even starting to fabricate pieces.Locating jewelry from this period can be very difficult.brooch features a trembler that gives movement to the pin.

In terms of jewelry design, although the name of the period obviously references England, this nation wasn’t the sole influence.Until 1961, Danish silver was identified by a stamp with three towers. (A mark with two towers means silverplate.)Other hallmarks can also include Swedish year markings and The Designer Initials which can further assist in dating a particular item.
