FINE VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE C.900-1050 AD
Over 1/2" height plus the suspension loop, with nubs at the sixth points. Formed as a heart with a cusped top, superimposed on a smaller heart concealing the top. Thus, two hearts in one. 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. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver surface restored on a Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
