Variation of this basic Viking accessory. These were worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor.

This broach, had spiritual significance as well as being decorative and protective. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear.
