From the land of fjords and trolls

Antique traditional costume necklace of silver filigree, Norway circa 1900

In the course of the national romantic movement at the beginning of the 20th century, traditional folk costumes also experienced a renaissance in Norway. Almost every region of this diverse country had its own distinctive costume. These "bunader" were worn with great pride. These pieces of clothing, often lovingly handcrafted, were always accompanied by various pieces of jewellery, which were passed down from generation to generation as precious family treasures. The necklace presented here belongs in this context. Made of silver, it shows the typical formal language of Norwegian folk art. Movable suspensions and chains give the piece a splendid appearance. Blue enamel and white enamel, which imitates deceptively genuine pelen sets colorful accents. A beautiful, traditional piece of jewelry from the land of trolls and fjords.
