Description

Stunning antique bronze necklace. 28" long. This beauty, hand-crafted in Finland, is a replica of an ancient design handed down through generations and revered in Finland, indeed the rest if the world. The carvings remind me of ancient Irish Celtic designs, and indeed the Norsemen did land in, and roam, throughout Ireland.

Finnish Halikko Series.

Halikko Necklace prototype for this Kalevala Koru design dates from the 12th century. The string of filigreed balls of the original piece was found with three silver cross pendants in Halikko, in southwestern Finland. The valuable find was buried in an earthenware jar during the conversion of Finland to Christianity, about 800 years ago. The jewelry may have been hidden by a priest who wanted to protect it from pagan Finns, or just as well by church robbers who were hiding their booty - no one knows for sure.
Kalevala Koru is renowned for their interpretations of historic jewellery pieces discovered at archaeological sites. The company was founded in 1935

This vintage necklace is in remarkable condition and such very rare find. The necklace is 28" long and could be made shorter by simple means that would maintain the original size.

The necklace is easily mistaken for solid carat gold, it shines and shines the same. The bronze is THAT special and easy to care for.

This necklace is very rare. Prices are steadily climbing. Excellent investment!

A very special necklace, with intrinsic value.

I ship USPS express international because it is the only way I can track the package to your door step. I am excited about offering items to international buyers, but ask that you read this section and are ok with the terms before deciding to buy. Shipping this way is very expensive. Please convo me before buying so we can agree on the cost. There are no refunds or returns of international sales under any circumstance.

U.S. shipping will be whatever the best choice is for the item, insurance will be added to higher end sales with signature required.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee a USPS delivery date. I can guarantee I will ship quickly, as indicated on the item, provide tracking info, etc., but have no control over when you receive the package. If for some reason the item doesn't get to you in the time you may require, it is not my fault and I am not responsible for missed buyer's "need by dates". I will work with you tirelessly to find a solution in this very rare instance.

Additional policies

Just for information: I am a buyer too. I buy all over the world. Often I am surprised at the size of a piece of jewelry when it arrives, as cameras and macro lenses today make wonderful photos, but they can make an item seem larger as the lens picks up close details which you really DO want to view. Please ask questions re size or ask for a snapshot of the item next to say, a dime or quarter or a can of soda on larger items. I do try to describe the size of the item in detail and in the photos which are part of the description.
