Solje, or sølje, is a traditional Norwegian silver jewelry piece that has a long history. The word solje means "sunny" or "shiny". The jewelry's origins date back to when it was used as a protective bauble to keep children safe from trolls who might steal them in their sleep. The dangling spoons on the jewelry were thought to reflect evil away from the wearer, especially during times of transition, such as for babies and brides.

Over time, solje became a symbol of status and a way to convey family and heritage. It's now considered an appropriate accessory for weddings, holidays, and other formal occasions. For example, a heart-shaped solje with a crown is often worn by brides to symbolize a Norwegian wedding crown. Solje is often made from sterling silver, and some pieces may have silver drops or "tears" dipped in 18kt gold.
