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 warrior owners. This is the broken end of a fine Viking woman warrior's bronze bracelet. It is about 3/8” X 5/8” with crossed bands of hound’s tooth or zig-zag figuring beneath two concentric “dot and circle” motifs, probably of supernatural significance. It is a woman’s bracelet, broken in the warrior’s funerary ritual. It is well documented that women fought alongside men and women’s burials containing swords, other weapons and armor are documented. The surface is textured from 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 certification of authenticity and jewelry gift box.
