Brodrene Bjorklund BrdrB silver jewelry
Undoubtedly, Danish silverware is famous for its beauty and grace. Many of the most remarkable silversmiths, whose names are widely known in the world, created jewelry worthy of museums. Among them are Bernhard Hertz (1834-1909), Hans Hansen (1884-1940), Volmer Bahner (1912-1995), Henning Kopel (1918-1981), Georg Jensen (1866-1935), and many others. The Brødrene Bjorklund (Brdr.B) workshop, founded by the trained silversmiths, also contributed to the development of Danish silverwork. By the way, brødrene from Danish is “brothers”.

Traditionally, jewelers hand-crafted jewelry in an innovative modernist style using sterling silver, enamel, mother of pearl, and semi-precious stones. The Brodrene Bjorklund workshop, opened in Copenhagen in 1961, ceased to exist in 1971. Naturally, the quality products of this company are highly collectible.

Noteworthy, The Bjorklund brothers are often confused with The Bjerring Brothers, who worked at about the same time in Copenhagen. In particular, the Bjorklund brothers worked from 1961 to 1971, and The Bjerring Brothers from 1962 to 1988. Indeed, the style of their products, the technique, and even the labeling are very similar. Yet, there are still differences. Thus, The Bjorklund brothers’ markings include “Brd.B”, in addition to “handmade”, “sterling” and “Denmark”, and The Bjerring Brothers are hallmarked “Brdr.Bj”.
