A lovely blue zippered anti-tarnish bag is included to keep the crown protected during storage.

The Norwegian Wedding Crown (Brudekrone) has been a part of Norwegian customs since the mid Sixteenth Century. The Bride often decorated her wedding crown with brudabonne (long, colorful ribbons) and noisy, jangling silver ornaments, the crown was an essential element of the Norwegian wedding. During the reception, the bride would dance vigorously and the tinkling melody of the ornaments was believed to ward off evil spirits. During many rites of passage, especially baptism and marriage, it was a common belief that the trolls would attack, because humans were vulnerable as they changed status.

At the precise moment a woman went from being single to married, she risked being taken to the mountain by trolls. Brides wore the most and the finest jewelry, including several large brooches, finger rings and bridal necklaces. Women throughout Norway wore special headdresses. Brides in central Norway wore headdresses decorated with beads and dangles. In western and northern Norway, brides wore metal crowns with hanging decorations shaped like circles, crosses, leaves and birds. the few crowns that existed in a church parish were often available for rent from the owner, usually a minister or wealthy farmer.

All soljes use a variety of dangles to ward off Evil Spirits and keep you safe from harm and Trolls. Soljes were given for a variety of occasions. Enjoy wearing this beautiful crown as it gathers the sparkle from the sun to warm hearts and souls.
