JOSINA jewelry - a tribute to beauty and life.
Founder and designer Josina Wilhelmina Bergsøe has a motto: “Everybody has a right to shine”. This is the main philosophy behind her jewelry.
“I have always been passionate, excited and curious about creating great designs”. “Design is everywhere and in everything”, says Josina Wilhelmina Bergsøe
Josina Wilhelmina Bergsøe is well-known throughout Denmark for her dedicated fundraising in aid of breast cancer research. It was, in fact, her own breast cancer that kick started her dreams of creating her own jewelry and her own company, JOSINA. Today, she designs, produces, and sells exclusive handmade jewelry.
"When I saw the Grim Reaper, and felt the Lord pinch me, all my senses were sharpened and my wishes and hopes for life became extremely present. The result of my new life is my jewelry. It is the crystallization of my tribute to life, to love, to friendship, and, not least, to beauty," says Josina Bergsøe, CEO of JOSINA. She continues:
“I want women and men to feel powerful and beautiful when they wear my jewelry”
The JOSINA design
Josina Wilhelmina Bergsøe creates jewelry with clean lines & technical precision. The pieces are minimalistic yet timeless, - luxurious and yet playful.
She makes unexpected details like pendants, that can be worn as both ring and bracelet, ring with precious stone on the inside to create an element of surprise, and jewelry pieces, that allow her customers to create their own style. And finally, she loves to use a lot of diamonds in her jewelry. Great design is all about the detail, and Josina has an eye for details.
“Everybody has a right to be beautiful. Everybody has a right to shine. That is what I want my jewelry to express and symbolize”.
“I want women & men to wear my jewelry every day forever” Josina explains.
Surrounded by inspiration
“My mind constantly develop new ideas and solutions through the beauty I see and experience”. Says Josina Bergsøe. "Beauty comes in many shapes and from many places. I always embrace beauty when I see it, every curve and every little groove or rounding in my jewelry is an expression of the beauty I have seen and been inspired of”.
“I am very proud of my collection and my desk is swelling with new ideas, shapes, and details soon to be turned into jewelry for women & men who applaud beauty and life just as I do”
