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.
