14k gold Finnish pendant with pearl, by Olli Auvinen for Westerback 1968
Welcome to my jewelry box. I have a fondness for fine yet wearable solid gold and silver jewelry. In particular I love high quality bracelets from Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Italy. I scour European auction houses to find the best vintage pieces to import, to wear and to share.
14k gold Finnish pearl pendant by Olli Auvinen 1968
A perfect gold sphere reveals its interior, a single floating pearl. A poignant inventive geometric form designed by one of the pioneers of Modern Finnish jewelry design, Olli Auvinen for Westerback.
Goldsmith Olli Auvinen (active 1933-2007) started his career with G. Buchert in 1949, moved from there to Alppultata as a designer. He also designed jewelry for Westerback in the 1960s. He became a goldsmith at the Goldsmiths' School in 1965 and eventually became the school's director.
This pearl pendant is made of solid 14k yellow gold with hallmarks for maker, location, year and gold purity. Pendant measures 1 1/2" x 1/2" and weighs 2.4 grams total.
I have added an 18inch 14k gold delicate chain. It's a lovely match but if you'd prefer to have only the pendant, just select that option in the drop down box.
Only one available.
