For sale here is a rare and SUPERB vintage 1970s 80s handmade sterling silver and rock crystal quartz sculptural geometric modernist pendant on neckring necklace designed by Mirjam Salminen for Kaunis Koru of Finland. Kaunis Koru was founded in 1956 by Martta Ritvanen, and launched the careers of many talented designers including Bjorn Weckstrom, Mirjam Salminen, and Olavi Wehmersuo. An outstanding example of her design work, and not an easy item to find! (I have the matching bracelet also for sale here in my Ruby Lane store - search under "Salminen" to find it.) The pendant measures 2-5/8" long by 1-1/2" wide on the matching neckring that will fit up to 16" to 16.5" neck (measures 5-1/8" by 5" interior diameters). The entire necklace weighs a super hefty 55 grams total. Marked as shown with maker mark for Kaunis Koru, "925" for sterling silver, silversmith mark "MKR", and date letter for 1986. (This design first came out in the early 1970s, but this example was made in 1986.) Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
