Here is a rare opportunity to obtain a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. This innovative and unique solid gold sculptured pendant necklace created by Bjorn Weckstrom for Lapponia of Finland in 1979. Superb detail and contrast. The sculptured textured and satin gold centerpiece holds a hammered crown that surrounds an unrefined medallion of gold striated base nugget from Northern Finland.
Each link of the gold chain looks to have been individually created with very subtle differences that add to the mastery of this work of art.
Total weight is 17 grams. The chain measures 17 1/2 inches. The pendant drop is about 2 inches.
The pendant is fully hallmarked as follows: Scales with 585 (for 14K gold), a crown in heart (for Finland), the location symbol, sign for Lapponia, B8 (date stamp for 1979), and signed LAPPONIA.
The previous owner purchased this in a Scandinavian boutique in 1979. The current condition is pristine.
