Copper originally gilt, size 7 ¼ . Broad band, 5.8mm, with flat face decorated with a median angled chiseled stipple band and fine stipple band to the edges. Fine glossy dark brown patina. Vikings were expert metallurgists. The use of pure copper is rare and suggests a supernatural significance as alloys were much more durable Vikings exchanged rings on the pommel of the groom’s sword. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
