1963 Rare Nordic Modernist 18 Karat Yellow Gold Collar Necklace

$22,500

About

A rare, hand-made modern Nordic 18 karat gold highly articulated collar that sits beautifully on the neck, by Finnish goldsmith Leo Torikainen for Pirkan Kulta Oy, 1963. With a subtle, textured finish and impeccable workmanship. Includes original box. Stamped with makers mark & Finnish assay mark. The design of the necklace is wholly original, as are the proportions of each gold piece and the manner in which they so elegantly align. Leo Torikainen was most active c. 1940s - 1960s. In the 1940s, he founded the jewelry workshop Pirkan Kulta Oy with Arvi Halinen, and employed a number of different goldsmiths, all working within the modernist aesthetic. This is a timeless, unique neckpiece that draws instant attention and is also very comfortable to wear.
