Introducing the Curve Heart pendant - this pendant can save women's lives. For every Curve Heart pendant sold in both sterling silver and 18kt gold, Georg Jensen will donate majority of profits directly to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF).

Currently, one woman dies every eight hours as a result of ovarian cancer, and an estimated 14,000 Australian women will lose their lives over the next 10 years. We know that an early detection test is the key to significantly increasing the detection of this insidious disease in its early stages, ultimately saving 8,000 women's lives.

In partnership with OCRF, we have brought together advocates, researchers and women living with ovarian cancer to join the fight against ovarian cancer.


TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

 

 

The Curve Heart pendant is inspired by the natural world. Two perfect curves, fused together to form a heart, acts as a small reminder to celebrate the simple and effortless beauty in every day. For every Curve Heart sold in Sterling Silver Georg Jensen will donate $50 directly to OCRF. For Every Curve Heart sold in 18kt yellow gold Georg Jensen will donate $150 directly to OCRF.

 

THE SURVIVOR

MONIKA TASIC

Monika was just 27 years old when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, with the very minor symptom of abdominal bloating, she was diagnosed with stage 2A Germ Cell Ovarian Cancer. Monika was fortunate enough that her rare type of ovarian cancer exhibited symptoms in the early stages and was treated in time. She wants all women diagnosed with ovarian cancer to have that outcome. Monika wears the Curve Heart in sterling silver.

THE ADVOCATE

JULIE BISHOP

The Honourable Julie Bishop has worked with OCRF and partner organisations over recent years, to help raise much needed funds for research into the cause, treatment and prevention of ovarian cancer.

 

THE NEW MOM

ELEANOR PENDLETON

Eleanor Pendleton, founder of digital publication Gritty Pretty, is a new mum and expresses her gratitude for her ovaries and the power of what they can do - they gave her her son.

 

THE RESEARCHER

NICOLE YUWONO

"The funding from Georg Jensen allows us to continue our research without the constant anxiety of not knowing where our next funding will come from."

 Nicole Yuwono is a research Assistant and PHD candidate at the School of Women's & Children's Health, UNSW. Nicole's team are working to develop a test that is sensitive enough to detect DNA changes in the blood that occur in the early stages of ovarian cancer. 

THE MUM TO BE

ANNA HEINRICH

With a little one on the way, Anna's hope for the future is that this cause will no longer need our help as we have found an early detection test.

Survival rates for ovarian cancer have barely improved since 1975, the five-year survival rate in Australia has stagnated at 46% compared to dramatic increases across other cancers over this time. Currently no early detection test exists, now is the time to invest in saving women's lives.

THE SUPPORTER

JULES SEBASTIAN

Survival rates for ovarian cancer, relative to the increases seen in other cancers, haven’t really improved since 1975. As a longstanding friend of Georg Jensen, and a mum of two, Jules calls for anyone who can, to share the message, share the facts and buy a pendant.
