Solje is the national jewelry of Norway, and adorn traditional Norwegian costumes (bunads). Brides in Norway often receive a family solje piece to wear on their wedding day, along the lines of our "something borrowed" tradition.

Lovely design on this brooch ... the spacing between the gold wash spoons makes them really dance and catch the light ... older C clasp, hinge and pin in perfect working order ... weighs in at 7.3 grams and measures 2-1/8" long x 7/8" ... stamped 925 5V ... in very good vintage condition.

Silver was magical in Norway, the stuff of superstition and legend. The mines were thought to belong to the mountain trolls who were the very best silversmiths. Silver was used to protect against storms, heal sickness, make beer work, consecrate water, etc. A small silver brooch was pinned on a baby's clothing so the trolls couldn't make a swap with a troll baby. Silver pieces handed down from previous generations were especially valued because of their ancestral and spiritual connections.

Wear this brooch and keep your own trolls away!
