mod 60s David Andersen silver and enamel torque Necklace ~ Thor’s Hammer by Ostern

on Feb 18, 2015 in archived


Designed for David Andersen by Bjorn Sigurd Ostern a vintage 1960s sterling silver and enamel pendant necklace with an original Andersen neck ring. This design is referred to as “Thor’s Hammer” and in our case it comes in stunning shades of blue. I love the hand-hammered finish of the torque and the set’s slick elegance…


Size/Weight: pendant is just shy of 2″ tall by 1  7/16″ wide; neck ring has an inner circumference of 15  5/8″ (including the 7/8″ gap) yet is relatively adjustable; 27.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: both pieces are signed with David Andersen’s signature as shown as well as “NORWAY STERLING 925S”; though Ostern’s signature in not found here, this is a known design he created for Andersen; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage with gorgeously luminous colors in the enamel, great patina, minimalist elegance and no flaws noted



SOLD – Thank you!
