Georg Hornemann is one of the most experienced contemporary goldsmiths and designers and has been internationally renowned for his unusual jewellery creations for more than 50 years. Georg Hornemann is regarded as an artist among jewellery designers and has won almost every international award for outstanding jewellery design since the late 1960s. The company was founded in 1973 and since over 30 years Georg and his son Alexander work very closely together. With their seemingly inexhaustible creative drive, Hornemann jewellery creations by Georg and Alexander Hornemann have long influenced and shaped European jewellery design. His complex oeuvre consists of haute joaillerie and objets d’art and is inspired by architecture, art, and nature, thus transcending the conventional perception of the traditional goldsmith's craft. The works by Hornemann combine traditional craftsmanship with the latest techniques. Diamonds or precious stones are combined with materials such as gold, silver, platinum, bronze, iron, and even Corian or acrylic glass to create unique or limited-edition pieces for their customers.
