Anpé Atelier Cph was founded in Copenhagen in 2017 by jewellery designer and former lawyer, Line Jacobsen.
Line is an educated lawyer and practiced for almost 8 years. However, there was always a creative nerve and spark that couldn’t be invoked working as a lawyer. “I’ve always had a passion for creativity, fashion and the creation of beautiful things – It never stops to amaze me that jewellery is sustainable in the sense that they can exist forever and can be passed on through generations. That a piece of jewellery very often has a story and a very special meaning “.
After a journey to Sri Lanka in 2015, she got inspired by the colorful way of living in every aspect: from houses, spices and women’s dresses (saris), to colorful temples, markets, nature, and the most amazing colorful jewellery. The laidback way of living surrounded by a 24/7 colorsplash so amazing – and so different from Scandinavia. After the meeting of a man, who was already in the gem-trade, the idea to fuse the colorful and magical East with the minimalistic North came to life, and Anpé Atelier Cph was born.
The name Anpé Atelier Cph mixes Sinhala and Scandinavia joined together by the colorful, magical little artworks that is the jewellery.
Anpé Atelier Cph’s distinct vision is to innovate the Scandinavian fine jewellery scene making it more colorful and playful. In this regard, Anpé Atelier tries to challenge the usual jewellery mindset and change the focus from diamonds over to sparkling colorful sapphires and other colored gemstones. Diamonds are still part of Anpé Atelier collections, but diamonds will always be secondary to the colorful gems.
In the pursuit of a colorful life, we use only the best gemstones (mainly from Sri Lanka and Madagascar), sustainable materials, and working exclusively with 14kt and 18kt gold combined with the finest classical craftsmanship. All items are designed by Line Jacobsen.
