Col­lec­tors of con­tem­po­rary jew­ellery are well aware of the con­tri­bu­tion made by the Dan­ish com­pany founded by Ge­org Jensen (18661935), which continues to thrive to­day. Fewer will have heard of Re­gitze Over­gaard (b. 1946) who has been a con­trib­u­tor of de­signs since 1987.

She trained as a gold­smith in 1970, grad­u­at­ing from the Copen­hagen School of Arts and Crafts in 1976. Her most successful de­signs are, ‘In­fin­ity’, ‘Zephyr’ and ‘Curve’ col­lec­tions of pen­dants, bracelets, ban­gles and rings, while the pop­u­lar ‘Magic’ col­lec­tion is par­tic­u­larly no­table for the way her or­ganic rings com­bine 18K white and yel­low gold with black rub­ber in­serts. This ex­am­ple, which re­tained its orig­i­nal in­sert, sold for £430 at Warren & Wig­nall in Ley­land.
