VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE C.900-1000 AD
3/4” height plus the suspension loop. Raised scrolling edge and near-flat form. The field with a pentafoil motif (five-leaf). Rare and probably a reference to fertility. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored, on a gilt neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
