The relaunch of the goldsmith shop, which has existed for 105 years, includes a new and international name “Gold by Schmidt”, as the idea is that in addition to his workshop and showroom in Labæk 15, he will also reach customers outside Denmark via the business website. Like his father, Thomas Schmidt will give customers the story of their new jewelry and its creation, but where the father typically made a drawing, Thomas Schmidt will as a new initiative make a video clip so the customer can get a video file along with his new jewelry.

Ever since he was a child, Thomas Schmidt has become acquainted with the goldsmith profession and has worked with his profession since he was 15 years old, which has led to him being trained as a goldsmith in 2011. In addition to having a lot of craft experience with him from the family workshop, Thomas has been responsible for Schmidt Kjergaard’s PR and Facebook page with 20,000 followers. Thomas Schmidt is related to his father, both when it comes to personal style and business. Like his father, jeweler Jørgen Schmidt Kjergaard, a presentable look and a unique style is something that Thomas attaches great importance to. It is also this style that has been the basis for the development of the new website.

Thomas is the fourth generation in the local goldsmith dynasty Schmidt Kjergaard, which first saw the light of day on October 28, 1910, when Thomas Schmidt’s great-grandfather and great-grandmother, Christian and Camilla Schmidt Kjergaard, opened the goldsmith shop with its workshop in Holbæk. The son Knud Schmidt Kjergaard took over, and so did the grandson, Jørgen Schmidt Kjergaard. After Jørgen Schmidt Kjergaard’s sudden death in 2010, Thomas Schmidt’s sisters, Karina and Anette Schmidt Kjergaard, ran the business as a private limited company with Karina Schmidt Kjergaard, who is a trained goldsmith, as director. In 2016, due to illness, they had to close the family business after 105 years in Holbæk.
