In the Sami culture, silver jewellery was an important investment, but it was also believed to be loaded with magic and symbolism. A ‘silver collar’ forms part of the traditional woman’s costume for weddings and celebrations.  This sami silver collar decorated with lacing rings, buttons and clasps was used in Senjen, Tromsö, Norway, in the early 19th century. Photo: Mats Landin, Nordiska museet, CC-BY-NC-ND.
