VIKING LUNAR PENDANT C.850-950 AD
1” wide. This example is of a heavy diamond section tapering to the tips of the crescent moon in elegant curled terminals.

Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Comes gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
