OTHMAR jewellery is founded on a long tradition with roots deeply founded in the Copenhagen soil. In 1972 Lise Othmar opened a shop selling fashion jewellery. She was the very first in Scandinavia to do so.
Trendsetters and the press loved the small shop, and it became popular very fast. Selling jewellery as a fashion item rather than a long term investment was new to the Danes, who were only accustomed with traditional, expensive jewellery.
In 1990 the daughter Charlotte took over the company, and the following year she opened a shop at St. Kongensgade in the heart of Copenhagen where it is still located today. At the same time the company expanded to sell wholesale, distributing all over Northern Europe to fashion shops, department stores and airlines.
In autumn 2008 OTHMAR chose a new strategy; the production was moved to the Far East, and the company will now solely focuse on sale from the flagship store and web shop.
In August 2009 the OTHMAR web shop opened, selling high quality designer jewellery at affordable prices where all price-raising intermediaries have been discarded.
