VIKING HEART PENDANT C.850-1050 AD
Broad, slightly curved with rounded edges. Well defined trefoil of three radial leaves, a very popular Viking motif. Over 1” width. Made by the open face mold technique. For Vikings the heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the warrior. It is said that Hrungnir, with whom Thor dueled (assisted by a sorceress), had a heart of stone. Superior preservation. Professionally refurbished with gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
