Georg Jensen x Sophie Bille Brahe - The HALO Collection

Please wait...

Clothes creates style, jewellery creates personality

Never leave home without your pearls

Gold get's better with age

Diamonds speak louder than words

Chocolate is good but jewellery is carb-free

Monday. Nothing some jewellery can't fix.

Only wear jewellery on days ending with "y"

Surround yourself with diamonds - not negativity

If I ever let my head down, it'll be to admire my ring

When in doubt, wear diamonds

You are like a diamond.. stunning, sparkling and damn hard to break.

Shine bright like a diamond

All you need is love. But a little jewellery never hurt anybody

Let's cover the world with glitter and pearls

Clothes without jewellery is like a toast without bread

On a bad day, there's always jewellery

I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number of carats in a diamond

Jewellery is like ice cream. There's always room for more

Women don't care if it's paper or scissors. Rock always wins

Beauty is who you are.. Jewellery is simply icing on the cake.

Nothing says I Love You like jewellery

Be thankful for great times, good friends and jewellery

Tell a story with jewellery

It's ok to be a little obsessed with jewellery

Life isn't perfect, but our jewellery is

I have enough jewellery. - said no one ever

May your coffee be hot & your jewellery on point

Jewellery is a treasure that lasts from one generation to another

No one never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.

You can’t cry on a diamond’s shoulder, and diamonds won’t keep you warm at night, but they are sure fun when the sun shines.

I don’t exercise. If god had wanted me to bend over. He would have put diamonds on the floor.

Jewellery is like the perfect spice - it always complements what’s already there

You never really know a woman until you've seen her jewellery

Jewellery is a way of keeping memories alive

You musn't be afraid to sparkle a little brighter darling

I feel the same way about jewellery as I do about food. I want it all

A diamond is a chunk of coal that is made great under pressure

A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls

Big girls need big Diamonds

Don’t ever let anyone ever dull your sparkle

Each day is a gem, different in kind, size, and color and yours to polish

Food. Water. Diamonds. You know, the essentials

If you don’t know jewellery, know the jeweler

No pressure, no diamonds

People will stare. Make it worth their while.

Rich and rare were the gems she wore, and a bright gold ring on her hand she bore

Wearing jewellery is a way to express the women you are without saying a word

When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure

Georg Jensen X Sophie Bille Brahe

By

The HALO effect
HALO is the new exclusive design collab by Danish heritage brand Georg Jensen and young jewellery talent Sophie Bille Brahe.

HALO is all about capturing the light in simple exclusive and effortless designs using the circular shapes and diamonds as focal point. Effortlessness as well as understated luxury were the two crucial things for Sophie Bille Brahe to capture in this exclusive collection.

We were invited when Georg Jensen launched the HALO-collaboration at Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen, where Sophie Bille Brahe revealed an honest and authentic presentation about the collaboration and the toughts that ran through her mind during the creative process.

The creative process

Bille Brahe’s creative process started in the archives where she found 150 years of design heritage. She knew immediately that she was looking to create a design that could aspire to become a Georg Jensen’s classic with the potential to one day become part of the archive.

One of the most important things for me was to find my own place in the Georg Jensen design story. Instead of being inspired by the previous designers, I was looking for a space I could fill out my self in the design language. At the same time I wanted to create a collection that was very clearly Georg Jensen and very clearly me” tells Bille Brahe

It came natural to Bille Brahe, who has walked her baby steps in Museums studying art to draw inspiration from something Danish.

I’m Danish and Georg Jensen is Danish so I wanted to capture the essence of “Danishness”, which to me is the very special luminating light that is so powerful and characteristic in Denmark and especially in Vilhelm Hammerhøis paintings and Olafur Eliassons drawings.”

How one piece became a favourite

Bille Brahe’s own favourite piece from the collection was the one design that troubled her the most.

Bille Brahe always challenges herself by bringing in elements in her collections that she doesn’t really like for the purpose of creating a design she herself will eventually love.
In reality, Bille Brahe has always disliked floating diamonds, which is why it became a personal challenge for her to create a design where a floating diamond was the focal point.

Her mission was completed when the cocktail ring with a big floating center diamond was brought to life. It has become Sophie’s personal favourite from the 19 pieces collection and a rare beauty that furthermore accentuates the name of the collection.

About the design aesthetic

Thin circular designs in 18kt gold sprinkled with diamonds are the focal point of the HALO collection, by Sophie BIlle Brahe for Georg Jensen. The look is classic, elegant and yet effortless. The name of the collection not only refers to the circular designs but also to the light a halo is associated with as Bille Brahe has embedded in her new designs for Georg Jensen. The light and shining circle has been one of the major inspirational sources for the 19 pieces HALO collection.
