Hans Hansen – Arrowhead Pendant and Choker

 

A Sterling Silver Arrowhead pendant hanging on a sterling silver choker. Designed and manufactured by Hans Hansen.

Hans Hansen were bought by Georg Jensen and are no longer active, so this sterling silver necklace is pre-owned. The pendant is in good condition, the choker is a little out of shape (ie not perfectly circular) but can be bent by hand to the shape of the new owners neck.

Designer - Hans Hansen

Hans Hansen (1884-1940) opened a goldsmith shop and smithy in Kolding, Denmark about 1906. 

By the 1920s Hansen was producing his own line based on his and H.F. Gross’ designs. Initially the company produced flatware. Once that was successful they started with jewellery. The first pieces were designed by Hansen himself around 1931 but production of jewellery really began in 1932 with a collection designed by Hansen’s son Karl Gustav Hansen.

Karl Gustav Hansen was born in Kolding on December 10, 1914. The younger Hansen showed an early aptitude for his craft and left school at 16 to become an apprentice to Einar Olsen a hollowware smith. In 1934. After travelling in Europe KGH opened up a workshop with his father in Copenhagen where passers-by could watch KGH and three other craftsmen at work through a large window. KGH had his first larger exhibition of works in Copenhagen in May 1940.

The next month, his father died at only 56 years old. KGH was 25 and he took over the Hans Hansen Silversmithy. Other designers such as Bent Gabrielsen Pedersen and Bent Knudsen also worked for Hansen and by the 1980s Allan Scharff was the leading designer. In 1992 the firm joined with the Georg Jensen company.

Sizing Guide

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.
