Modernist Silver Lapponia Necklace

Modernist Silver Lapponia Necklace

This is a fabulous piece of modernist jewellery by Bjorn Weckström for Lapponia of Finland. This necklace was made in 1974, is sterling silver and named "Galactic Peaks". The stamp on the back reads "W, 925, then a crown inside a heart, V7 and underneath Lapponia" Currently a modern edition of Galactic Peaks sells at Lapponia for around $2500.

It is a very similar design to one worn by Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in Star Wars in 1977. That one also by Bjorn Weckstöm was called "Planetoid Valleys" and features larger silver segments. This necklace is in Very Good Vintage Condition. A collectors piece but also very wearable today.
