Dating in 1968, this sterling silver Kalevala Koru “Halikko” necklace is generously long and its graduated beads, embellished with beaded and swirled designs have a patina that renders them even more dramatic to the eye. Based on ancient Finnish motifs,Halikko necklaces are still in production today, and they are Kalevala’s most expensive design, made to order only. This is, however, a vintage, old piece which makes it even more desirable and I would not be exaggerating if I said that it’s one of the most amazing bead necklaces I have seen…
Size/Weight: 22.5″ long ; diameter of beads ranges from 1″ to 3/8″ for the melon-shaped ones toward the back; 98.6 grams
Hallmarks / Date: fully signed with Kalevala Koru’s “kk” logo, “925” and the year letter for 1968
Condition: excellent vintage with stunning presence, generous length and patina to die for – even the clasp hides in the design
SOLD – Thank you!
