Early Twentieth century, stunning, handcrafted, and engraved traditional Norwegian 830 silver solje (i.e., sun) amulet pin courtesy of L. Johl. According to Norwegian folklore, the solje represents the sun and the wearer's protection from evil. Often, this jewelry is given to brides on their wedding and children on their day of christening. Very similar in design to an 1882 work by David Andersen, which is featured in Rezazadeh's reference on the subject of collectible silver jewelry, and valued between $200 and $300 dollars. This piece, however, incorporates a greater variation of design elements in its construction, and, for our taste, is more aesthetically appealing.
