Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Ring with Labradorite by Bent Gabrielsen No. 171

Designed by Bent Gabrielsen, circa 1970s, Denmark. Measures 3/4" D, size 6. CAN NOT be sized. Sterling silver, peacock ore. Excellent condition.

Bent Gabrielsen successfully qualified as a goldsmith in 1949 after serving his apprenticeship with the goldsmith Ejler Fangel in Copenhagen. He soon found work with the Hans Hansen Silversmithy where he eventually was responsible for overseeing the firm's entire production. Gabrielsen and his wife established the Gabrielsen Goldsmithy in 1969. A large part of his production was sold in Japan. One of his designs for Georg Jensen won the Lunning Prize in 1964. As Erik Bohr, Chairman of the Lunning Committee wrote, "Bent Gabrielsen's jewelry carries absolute conviction as to its function; his handling of materials is so restrained and well considered that one feels this could hardly be otherwise. His jewelry is simple and clearly constructed, often with links connecting naturally with each other so that the complete piece makes up a beautiful whole. Every single detail of his things is worked out. There are no false effects. He does not take the easy way out.”
