What does it take to create a brand that resonates with beauty and sensuality in the hearts and minds of women all around the world? It usually takes someone with exceptional talent, vision, passion and perseverance
In the case of DYRBERG/KERN, it took two such individuals from two extremely different backgrounds; each with a distinctive angle on design who were drawn to each other as if by destiny.
The moment Gitte Dyrberg and Henning Kern met, their unique chemistry and creative energy was instantly apparent.
As the Creative Directors, design masterminds and driving forces behind, DYRBERG/KERN A/S is today – 29 years later - a brilliant designer jewellery and watch brand, which never ceases to intrigue and entice consumers.
Their mission is clear: To be a preferred choice for modern and confident women to express their style and beauty.
How? By offering an extensive and inventive range of iconic classics and a sultry approach to style and sophistication. A fascination with art, architecture, interior, design, graphics, nature, film and music has influenced Dyrberg and Kern’s ability to continuously surprise and seduce consumers infatuated with their brand.
Together with their unrelenting creative connectivity with each other ...
Then you start to grasp how passionate and prolific Gitte Dyrberg and Henning Kern are as a design duo.
All DYRBERG/KERN design is managed from our design studio at our headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, where a skilled team of designers sketch the collections. After the seasonal fashion themes, trends and seasonal materials and colours are decided and each jewellery style is determined, the production takes place in various work-shops in Asia, where manufacturers produce the collection according to our design and quality standards.
Our materials, such as pearls, stones, crystals and leather are sourced all over the world, from Italy, China or Africa, depending on the season.
DYRBERG/KERN products are created by hand and undergo many different processes: from casting, polishing and plating of the metal base, to hand braiding of leather, to cutting, polishing, and insertion of semi-precious stones and brilliant crystals. Finally the many different elements of one single jewellery piece are assembled. After each process, a specific quality control is performed.
Each jewellery piece goes through about 40 different processes and as many hands before the magical moment finally happens – it meets your eye and love hopefully takes over...
