Regular price $345.00 Sale

Just under 5/8” height plus the loop, made by the open face mold method. Pierced with a heart in an evolved form with cusped top, above another heart in naturalistic form surrounded by a beaded wreath. The sixth points with pointed peaks, perhaps representing a star. The form of the heart is evolved as used to this day. Both forms are used profusely in Nordic literature. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Light surface wear and texture from burial. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored on a polished leather neck cord, shown separately, for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
