VIKING LUNAR PENDANT NECKLACE, C.900-1000 AD

B1527

Regular price $210.00 Sale

Over 3/4” width (0.82”).  Unusual, with the back deeply concave, perhaps to make it lighter. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. The Moon was personified as Mani, brother to Sol the Sun, and is abundantly represented in Norse literature. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing, and horse harnesses. This example is professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a modern Sterling silver chain and jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
