IKU-TURSO BRACELET Designer: Germund Paaer material: bronze or silver. Kalevala Koru bracelets have their roots in antiquity. The prototype for this bracelet dates from 900-1000 A.D. It was worn by Finnish tribes living in Russia. Ornamental motifs were usually geometric; they were either stamped, cast or in some cases, engraved. One piece of jewelry was seldom enough for the women of antiquity. They often wore identical bracelets on each arm.
