Kalevala Jewelry

Most of the Kalevala jewelry models date back to the Viking Era more than a thousand years ago, but the vast collection of jewelry also includes models that are almost twice that age. Some models in the collection are younger, only dating back to the 19th century. The items in the collection are replicas, variations or combinations of the originals and are made in collaboration with archaeologists.

Archaeologically, the background of the items in the Kalevala jewelry collection can be classified into the following categories, familiar from prehistoric research:

The Roman Iron Age 0-400 AD

The Great Migration 400-600 AD

The Merovingian Age 600-800 AD

The Viking Era 800-1025 AD

The Crusades 1025-1300 AD

During the Roman Iron Age, the Great Migration and the Merovingian Age jewelry was made of bronze, iron, silver and gold. The material of most of the Viking finds is bronze, whereas the jewelry made during the period of the Crusades was made of both bronze and silver.

One of the most important archaeological excavations in Finland is the area of Luistari in Eura. The site was discovered in 1969 and more than 10,000 finds have been made since.
