Bold necklace designed by Poul Havgaard for Lapponia. This necklace features an organic curved sterling silver pendant attached to a leather band. The sterling silver pendant was produced in Finland, while the leather comes from Italy. A timeless design.
Designer Poul Havgaard (1936-2011) started designing for Lapponia in 1971. His earlier designs are still an important part of the current Lapponia collection. The basis of his jewelry lies in organic forms. An essential principle of his design was the creation of a dynamic tension achieved by letting two interesting forms communicate with each other, as well as their surroundings. Havgaard was also known for combining amber with silver.
The Sterling pendant measures approx. 3" wide x 1" tall. The necklace measures approx. 14.5-15". Fully Hallmarked "Lapponia, 925, H8" Good vintage condition with surface wear and patina appropriate to age.
