Hermann Siersbol vintage silver jewelry
Highly regarded silversmith, jewelry designer Hermann Siersbøl could have created more than one masterpiece of wearable art, if not for his tragic death at the age of 40.
Born January 24, 1924 in Copenhagen, after leaving school he studied to be a jeweler, and worked as an apprentice for silversmiths. After earning his start-up capital in 1945, he began creating inexpensive handmade jewelry from a variety of materials. Moreover, it was post-war Europe, where women wanted to wear affordable high-quality jewelry. Thanks to his idea to make good jewelry affordable for everybody, his company gradually became one of the largest in Scandinavia.
Keeping the traditions of Scandinavian silversmiths, Hermann created jewelry in a variety of styles, including avant-garde, modernist, geometric and classical designs. Traditionally, he used sterling silver, gold plating, semi-precious stones, and akoya pearls. Noteworthy, his hallmark included “HS” and 830, or sterling 925, Denmark H.S. on oval base.
After the death of the designer on 30th July 1964, his four children continued their father’s business. According to sources, his son Henrik and granddaughter Camilla headed the company in 2010s.
