10th-11th century. All silver, not plated. 1” height overall. Broad lunar form with the tips of the crescent moon touching with a basal projection and enclosing a heart, a favorite Viking symbol of masculinity. The field made of five rows of small nubs, undoubtedly with astrological significance as the moon, personified as the god Mani, was sacred to Vikings. As navigators, the celestial bodies took on spiritual significance, providing the guidance which enabled their journeys.  On a modern Sterling silver neck chain for everyday wear.
