10th-11th century AD. Vikings were highly skilled metallurgists, and as a result, breaking metal had supernatural significance for them. Breaking ringjarn (iron rings) as shown on the Larbro Stone, was thought to destroy the spirits of enemies. Similarly, Viking weapons and accouterments were broken for burial with their owners. This is the broken end of a fine Viking woman warrior's gilt bronze bracelet. It is about 1/2" x 5/8". It is decorated in high relief with raised medial and edges enclosing bands of curvilinear forms in the Viking taste. It is a woman warrior’s bracelet, broken in the warrior’s funerary process. It is well documented that women fought alongside men and women’s burials containing swords, other weapons and armor are documented. The surface is well preserved burial. It was handcrafted by a Viking artisan 1000 years ago! It has been professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored and mounted to an 18” gilt Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. It comes with a certification of authenticity, and jewelry gift boxed.
