Halikko

In times of unrest, the bosom of the earth has provided shelter for the most precious treasures. Long ago, at the time of Finland’s conversion to Christianity, someone buried a silver treasure in the ground to keep it safe. The treasure included a necklace of finely ornamented silver beads. The owner never returned to retrieve the treasure. Whether it was hidden by a priest who wanted to protect the valuables from pagan Finns, or maybe by church robbers wanting to hide their booty, no one knows. In any case, the buried treasure speaks of the unrest and troubled times at the start of a new era in Finland. In 1887, the treasure was finally found in a field in the village of Joensuu in Halikko, Southwestern Finland, during spring ploughing. The most beautiful beads from the original necklace have been selected for the Halikko jewelry series.
