VIKING TWISTED RING C.850-1050 AD SIZE 10 ¼
Swelled top of spirally banded form, tapering to the overlapping band terminals. The rope twist is a motif repeated in Viking decoration, perhaps a reference to ships lines without which their conquest of the seas would not have been possible. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Almost equally relevant for the modern sailor. Size 10 1/4.
