VIKING LUNAR PENDANT NECKLACE C.950-1050 AD JEWELRY
Silvered bronze. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. This example is about 1” high plus the suspension loop. It is formed as a crescent with the ball terminals Sol the sun and Mani the moon. The swelled renulated central column anchors two smaller crescents with a common ball terminal. This is of astrological and thus, spiritual significance, probably representing a phenomenon not understood by Vikings. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored on modern Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
