VIKING LUNAR NECKLACE PENDANT C.870-1050 AD JEWELRY
Cambridgeshire, England. Just over 1/2” width of broad crescent form- pierced with five circles. The crescent represents the moon and the circles probably represent specific stars on which Vikings relied for navigation. Fundamental form to invoke supernatural guidance in navigating. Lightly textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored. On a modern Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear.
