RARE VIKING WOMAN WARRIOR’S BRACELET PENDANT NECKLACE, 10th-11th CENTURY AD

$190.00
10th-11th century AD. Vikings were highly skilled metallurgists, and as a result, breaking metal had supernatural significance for them. Breaking ringjarn (iron rings) as shown on the Larbro Stone, was thought to destroy the spirits of enemies. Similarly, Viking weapons and accouterments were broken for burial with their owners. This is the broken end of a fine Viking woman warrior's bronze bracelet. It is about 3/4” x 3/16” and decorated with deep relief motif of addorsed twist roping. It is a woman’s bracelet, broken in the funerary process. It is well documented that women fought alongside men and women’s burials containing swords, other weapons and armor are documented. The surface is textured from burial. It was handcrafted by a Viking artisan 1000 years ago! It has been professionally refurbished with a 24karat gold overlay and mounted to a gilt Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. It comes with certification of authenticity, and gift boxed.
