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 3/8”. It is hand-decorated by a Viking craftsman, 1000 years ago! The center panel is of four broad border triangles surrounding a saltire, flanked by toothed rectangles. It has been professionally refurbished with a silver overlay restored and mounted to a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. It comes with a certification of authenticity, and gift boxed.
