ANCIENT VIKING MAN’S TWIST RING C.850-1050 AD
Braided form with looped terminals. Size 10. The rope twist is a motif repeated in Viking decoration, perhaps a reference to ships lines without which their conquest of the seas would not have been possible. Good patina. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Almost equally relevant for the modern sailor.
