NANNA DITZEL (1923 – 2005)
Born in Copenhagen in 1923, Nanna Ditzel is one of Denmark’s most accomplished designers and was the first woman to design for Georg Jensen. She was born in Copenhagen and attended the Danish School of Arts, Crafts and Design and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 1946. She also met her first husband, Jorgen Ditzel at school and they began working and exhibiting together in 1944. She was trained in cabinet making; he in upholstery and they shared a design aesthetic based on creating comfortable, livable and simple environments.
In 1954, they began to create designs for Georg Jensen. The relationship between the couple and the Silversmithy began when Nanna decided to start designing jewellery as something she could do at home while her children slept. Jorgen died in 1961 but Ditzel kept their studio going and continued to work in a variety of media, designing among others, wooden furniture and silver jewellery.
Nanna Ditzel created many designs for Georg Jensen, mostly jewellery although she also created some holloware.
Ring, pendant & necklace size reference
Being Danish, Georg Jensen jewellery uses European Ring sizes for their products (all our other jewellery is measured in UK sizes). The chart below can be used to help choose the size that fits you best.
We would always suggest getting your finger measured professionally where possible or purchasing a cheap set of ring sizers online before deciding.
Alternatively, cut a piece of paper roughly to the width of the ring band you are interested in, wrap it around your finger making sure it can slide over your knuckle and mark and measure it where it overlaps. To be sure you can then sellotape or glue it to this size and test it over your finger. This will give you the Internal ring measurement in mm, which can be referenced on Google etc. For the European or UK equivalent.
