Anyone who has ever been to an Ikea knows the principles of Scandinavian design: ultra-simple, modern styles are made fresh with a keen eye for color and size and a whimsical sense of humor. This same principle applies to the unique local jewelry styles of Finland. Visitors to this small country are often surprised at the fun, bright Finland jewelry—and usually end up flying home with suitcases stuffed with fashion finds for family and friends.
Finland jewelry often takes advantage of the natural minerals available in the country. Although you can find Finland diamond vendors selling high quality diamonds for classic Finland engagement rings, you are much more likely to encounter a Finland jewelry store selling bronze and copper jewelry set with sun quartz, jasper, and rhodonite. Spectrolite, a locally-mined stone, is especially beloved by Finnish jewelry designs for its deep, moody color, which ranges from blue to green-gray. These jewelry pieces are often inspired by the stark beauty of the landscape.
One of the most popular jewelry stores in Finland is Kalevala, a brand that has been around for over 50 years and has only recently become available online. Kalevala jewelry incorporates images and motifs important to Finnish culture, making it a great way to celebrate the culture in a way that is still completely on-trend and wearable. Many of these motifs take inspiration from the natural world, like a silver brooch that looks like a twig with small buds—a welcome sign of spring after the long Finnish winter. Other pieces—like a necklace with a pendant shaped like stylized horse—take inspiration from ancient Norse legends and history. Many pieces are embellished with complex knots and twists of metal—ancient Norse symbols that are still meaningful today. Utilizing gold, silver, and bronze, as well as traditional materials and finishes like enameled metal, Kalevala jewelry is made by hand in Finland by traditional Finnish artisans, making it a great way to honor the culture and style of the land while supporting local industry.
You can order Kalevala jewelry easily online, but for the true range of styles and to meet the artisans who bring this ancient style to life, you have to visit an actual Finland jewelry store.
Another popular Finland jewelry brand is Aarikka. Founded about 50 years ago by Finnish jewelry designer Kaija Aarikka, the unique style is formed by using silver with highly-polished colored wood to create one-of-a-kind jewelry styles that exemplify the principles of modern Scandinavian design. Although you won’t find a Finland engagement ring here, Aarikka jewelry is a perfect way to add a touch of Finnish style to your wardrobe, whether with a bracelet strung with blue wooden beads, or a pair of stud earrings set with wooden beads so lustrous they look like colored pearls. This affordable and unique jewelry style makes a perfect gift to bring back home for friends and family as well.
