Regular price $255.00 Sale

Just over 3/4" in height including the suspension loop. Formed as a stylized heart with addorsed ovals to the top, representing the heart in its natural form. Intricate cross to the center, a decorative element borrowed from Christian neighbors and a small heart below. Inclusion of the Christian heart is common before the conversion of Vikings in the 11th century. Made by the open face mold process. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature and represented three times here in both iconic forms. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored on an 18” gilt Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
