GOOD VIKING WARRIOR’S RING C.850-1050 AD
Size 11 1/4. Swelled top of spirally banded form, tapering to the overlapping band terminals. 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. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored, for contemporary wear. Almost equally relevant for the modern sailor.
