VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE C.850-1050 AD.
Gilt bronze. 0.51" height, just over ½” plus the loop. Evolutionary form stylized as foliage which is an evolution of the trefoil motif that Vikings favored. Made by the open-face mold technique. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, and integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold restored on an 18” gilt Sterling silver necklace for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
