In 1989, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst came to the United States from their native Denmark to follow a dream: that of owning and running their own business, to introduce the Danish lifestyle and philosophy into the lives of many. Skagen Designs was founded by these two natives of Copenhagen on the principle that beautifully designed high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices.
The Skagen Denmark Collections reflect owners Charlotte and Henrik Jorst's creative Danish spirit with clean, elegant designs, skillful craftsmanship and technical perfection. The Jorsts have a hand in designing each piece of the Skagen Collection, from watches to jewelry to sunglasses. | skagen.com
A diamond is measured using a weight measurement called a carat. A carat is equal to two hundered milligrams. When a diamond is spoken of as four grains it is a one-carat stone. Carat gets its name from the bean known as a carob. In the past if the stone weighed the same as the bean it was said to be one carob, which became one carat.
