Herman SIERSBØL (HS)
Opened his own silversmith workshop in April 1945. It was his mission to create affordable quality jewellery in modern designs. He had the right idea, for the initial kr 2,000 investment , which he had saved from his salary as an apprentice, gradually led to the development of one of the largest gold and silversmiths in Scandinavia. Today the company uses the most advanced production methods and equipment for casting and stamping jewellery pieces. Herman Siersbol died in a tragic accident in 1964 and the company was taken over by his 4 children. His son Henrik Siersbol is now the sole owner, and runs the company with his daughter Camilla.
