MOONLIGHT GRAPES - The creation of an icon

The perfect blend of classic and contemporary, the iconic Moonlight Grapes collection – originating back to an original Georg Jensen design from the early 1900’s – affirms its position as a future classic. 

This autumn bids welcome to diminutive grapes that, despite their scaled-down size, are as voluptuous and desirable as their predecessors. A polished grape cluster charm is the perfect complement to Georg Jensen’s braided leather bracelet; and vine leaf earrings with flawlessly formed droplets of this season’s new gemstones in on-trend hues – blue jade or grey moonstone – showcase the union of old and new. 

Handcrafted by skilled artisans, the arresting contrast of polished silver and radiant gemstones enhances the intensity and vitality of each piece. Authentically vintage yet truly contemporary, Moonlight Grapes unites the world’s most beautiful natural materials in forms inspired by one of nature’s most sanguine symbols.

Care for Your Jewellery

Gold jewellery should be polished with a soft piece of wash leather, which is Leather that has been treated so as to be very absorbent - this is also suitable or cleaning the surface of the diamonds.

It is advised to have the setting of the diamonds checked by a professional jeweller once a year, especially on the rings and we can do this for you.

Cleaning of the diamonds: The safest method for cleaning diamond jewellery is a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water followed by a good rinse in hot water.

All Georg Jensen white gold is rhodium plated to make the white gold alloy white. Rhodium is a chemical element that is a rare, silvery-white, hard, and chemically inert transition metal and a member of the platinum group.

The rhodium coating will wear off at some point, how long it takes will vary from piece to piece and person to person depending on how and how often it is worn. We can arrange to have the rhodium coating renewed and we also stock cloths for cleaning.

We also offer a complete jewellery repair aftercare service which includes:

• Ring re-sizing.
• Re-tipping claws.
• Re-mounts and re-setting.
• Gold and silver chain repairs.
• Gold and silver bracelet repairs.
• Pearl and bead re-threading.
