FINE VIKING TWISTED RING 9TH CENTURY AD, SIZE 9 1/4
Wearable size 9 1/4. The band with tapered raised twist segment near the full circumference. That form rarely encountered. The spiral or helix was a form of particular interest to Vikings. It was used in full relief as here and represented in low relief (surface relief) in jewelry and other metalwork. Well modeled and preserved. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with a certification of authenticity.
