VIKING TWIST RING 850-1050 AD

JNS912

Regular price $190.00 Sale

Gilt bronze. Size 10. Slightly tapered from top to bottom, the upper third in a spiral or rope twist, in the Viking taste. The spiral or helix had special significance, probably supernatural, to Vikings and was used extensively in jewelry and decoration. Its use may derive from plotting the stars. Professionally refurbished with the gold surface restored.
