SUPERB VIKING SHIELD RING, C. 9TH-10TH CENTURY, SIZE 10-10 1/2

$2,150.00

Ring size 10-10 1/2. These iconic rings, sometimes called shield rings are a variation on the coil ring which was a popular Vikings form. The band is made with overlapping ends rather than continuous. The oval bezel just under 1 (0.98”)” in length. Broad overlapping prong band allowing for some adjustment. The large oval bezel with raised border and broad rounded transverse bands flanked by smaller, narrow bands. Unusually made as a thick plate with the decoration incised. These usually are thin, near foil thickness with the decoration embossed and easily wear with small holes appearing. All the decoration crisp and uniform on this example. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with certification of authenticity. Museum-worthy and an absolute show stopper!
