Since 1978, the Danish Arts Foundation has purchased jewellery created by Denmark’s leading experimental jewellery artists. The collection represents some of the finest Danish jewellery from the past five decades.
A unique aspect of jewellery is that is made to be worn. Much of the jewellery in the Danish Arts Foundation’s collection is included in the loan scheme launched in 2007, where Danish citizens taking part in an official event can borrow a piece of jewellery for the occasion. In this way, the jewellery can be used and exposed, and just like the other works of art purchased by the Danish Arts Foundation, it can thus reach a public audience
Furthermore, the collection is occasionally put on public display to promote Danish jewellery art in Denmark and abroad.
