In 2015, inspired by the race to find an early detection test for ovarian cancer, Georg Jensen partnered with the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). This year, in addition to the beautiful “Offspring” pendant, Georg Jensen has crafted a matching pair of limited-edition earrings.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of both will go to the OCRF, which helps the foundation continue its life-saving work. To celebrate the campaign, marie claire has teamed up with Georg Jensen and the OCRF, calling on some of our favourite celebrities including Delta Goodrem, Jess Gomes, Sam Frost, Samantha Armytage, Miranda Tapsell and Tanya Plibersek to wear the pieces in our October issue, on sale now.
Ovarian cancer is known as the ‘silent killer’ and is one of the deadliest cancers affecting women. Unlike breast cancer, ovarian cancer can be difficult to diagnose in the early stages, as symptoms are often vague and similar to those of common illnesses. In Australia, four women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every day. Owing to the lack of early detection tests, approximately 75% of women are diagnosed at the advanced stage, meaning that the cancer has spread and is difficult to treat.
The stunning Georg Jensen pieces are priced at $195.00 each and are available in-store and online.
