The epitome of tastefully designed jewelry, these small charms recreate individual letters from the renowned architect Arne Jacobsen’s unique hand-drawn typeface in 18k gold-plated sterling silver. Originally created in 1937 and still present today on the City Hall in Aarhus, Denmark, Arne Jacobsen’s sans serif typeface is nearly as famous as the man himself, and is an enduring symbol of timeless Danish design. The Arne Jacobsen Small Charm Design Letters are available in 0.6”h letters from A to Z. Each is hand-polished and is sold singly. Choose one or more to wear proudly on a bracelet or chain of your choice, or on the Arne Jacobsen Design Letter Jewelry Chain, sold separately.

Remembered for his contributions to Functionalism, Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902–1971) was a Danish architect, and furniture and homewares designer. His 1950s stacking chairs, which are represented in MoMA's collection, are instantly recognizable worldwide, while his flatware set from 1957, also a design in the Museum's collection, was used as a prop in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. (The pieces still seem futuristic, even today.) Jacoben's work has been features in MoMA exhibitions, including Transformations in Modern Architecture (1979) and Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013).
