Bunad silver Hardanger lady

Hardanger lady

At the neck of the Hardanger Bunad there's a brooch formed as a double button, preferably with pendants. The shirt has a larger gilded brooch, often with dish leaves or cross leaves - or both. Married ladies may carry a wide chain with Agnus Dei. A plaque belt is a must-have on this Bunad, often with a fangreim. Light and gilded silver is used, and on the winter Bunad you might find oxidized silver as well.
