    It pays to persist with one's research!

    This is one of the pieces that was in my "bonanza" of silver and gold jewelry items of last week. I was annoyed that I couldn't trace the hallmark. Today, I noticed the "KL" inscribed on the side of the pendant. That lead me to Karl Laine. Twenty cents well spent. :-D
    Born in 1945.
    "Karl Laine is a famous Finnish Goldsmith and Designer. He is mostly known for his work with Jewelry. Karl Laine has designed Pewter Objects for Kultakeskus Oy / Linna Tinaa."

    Thanks for looking, everyone.

      Nice! I envy your detective skills, you are great at this!

      MFT - thanks! I've discovered that once I understand what it is I'm searching for, it makes it easier. I do Google Images searches every day and use different combinations of words to try to track down what it is I am wanting to find. In this case, it was just dumb luck that I happened to notice the letters on the edge.

      Hi Bonnie, I have a couple of pieces by Jorma Laine, I'm going to check if they were related. Lovely piece by the way.

      Interesting article, I don't think they were related
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      Peasejean55 - it was an interesting article. It's possible that they were distant relatives.

      I really really like this pendant. It's very different.
      Another great buy and research Bonnie.

      You are truly amazing. Jewelry is so hard to see let alone identify. Thanks for sharing all of your lovely hard earned pieces and information. :)
