Nugget

Jewelry artist and sculptor Björn Weckström is the internationally best-known Finnish jewelry designer. In the early 1960s, he created a series of gold jewelry inspired by gold nuggets from Finnish Lapland. The uneven soft glow of matte gold jewelry made them like miniature sculptures created by Nature itself. The jewelry signified a revolution in the still highly conservative world of jewelry, and made Björn Weckström famous worldwide. Organic, sculpturesque designs and the warm glow of matte gold became a signature feature for gold jewelry designed by Weckström. The form and texture of gold nuggets washed from the rivers of Lapland are immortalised in the Nugget jewelry – gold as Nature intended.
