Jacqueline Rabun

Jacqueline Rabun is a self taught American Jewellery designer that started designing in the 1980's. She now designs for the famous Georg Gensen brand. The popular brand brand she's currently involved with include their Cave collection.

According to the Georg Gensen website "...Jacqueline Rabun began her journey into the world of contemporary jewellery design in 1989 when she arrived in London from her native America.

Her debut collection was instantly embraced by the fashion and design world and quickly established her as an international designer.

Her collaboration with Georg Jensen commenced in 1999. Her premiere sculptural silver jewellery range, Offspring, celebrates the creation of life and is a symbolic representation of mother and child. The sensuous form of the Offspring collection expresses a freshness and modernity that radiates light and life. The Offspring collection has also been reinterpreted in pave set diamonds as part of the iconic Master Diamond Collection.

Recognized for her unique and poetic approach to the art of jewellery design; her fluid conceptual forms combined with lyrical symbolic features reveal a dimension that reflects her fascination with the order of the natural world and the contours of the human form. The Cave collection encourages one to seek tranquility and to retreat to ones inner space for stillness and contemplation. The Cave collection celebrates the refined and organic design language that Jacqueline Rabun and Georg Jensen has become renowned.

For Georg Jensen’s centenary celebration, Jacqueline Rabun paid tribute with the feminine yet provocative 100 collection. The digits of the number 100 are adapted into a striking silver jewellery collection. This collection has

also been reinterpreted in the iconic Master Diamond Collection, morphing the emotion and beauty of the range with pavé set diamonds..."
