ANCIENT VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE, C.850-1050 AD
Classic heart form. 3/4” heigh plus the suspension loop. The broad edges scrolling at the top forming the cusp and the top two members of the trefoil on the depressing field, a favorite Viking form. Good high relief. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
