Vikings were highly skilled metallurgists, and as a result, breaking metal had supernatural significance for them. Breaking ringjarn (iron rings) as shown on the Larbro Stone, was thought to destroy the spirits of enemies. Similarly, Viking weapons and accouterments were broken for burial with their owners. This is the broken end of a fine Viking warrior's bronze bracelet. It is about 3/4” x 7/8”. It is hand-decorated by a Viking craftsman, 1000 years ago!. The design is in two ranks: a square with saltire with curvilinear detail to the quadrants and an asymmetrically decorated panel with raised edges and mounded medial flanked by a similar mounded band and a detailed crescent figure. It has been professionally refurbished with a 24karat gold overlay restored and mounted on an 18" gilt Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. It comes with a certification of authenticity, and is jewelry gift boxed.  About the best of these we have seen.
