|Gorgeous David Andersen vintage torque pendant necklace, its pendant I found referred to as "Thor's Hammer" and though there is no signature for the actual designer, there seems to be an agreement among experts that this is probably the work of Bjorn Sigurd Ostern. Made of sterling silver both pendant and neck ring have developed a patina to die for and even though the set was acquired together and has obviously been that way for a long time, I am not sure whose the signature on the neck ring is - I have added a close up for you to assess it yourselves. All I have to say is that I love the pendant's perfect enamels in soothing, cool shades of blue - ideal for the summer but also fantastic in the midst of winter's wonderland. Measuring 2" tall by 1 1/2" wide the pendant hangs off a neck ring with an inner circumference (hooked) of 13 3/4". The set weighs 24.2 grams (pendant alone is 14.7 grams). Signed "DAVID ANDERSEN" and "NORWAY STERLING 925S" on the pendant while the neck ring is marked "STERLING" and also bears initials in script that look like an A (double one?) to my eyes. Dating in the 1960s and in excellent vintage condition with no flaws to the enamels and fantastic patina.|
