Charm size, just 5/8” height plus the loop. Made by the open mold technique. Fully developed form with cusped top and slightly domed face with three relief decorations of four dots or pellets each. The upper two round to conform to the cusp and the bottom of the diamond shape to conform to the lower point. These are similar to the Viking “fertile field” pendants which are formed as lattices and they may represent fertility here. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a modern Sterling silver neck chain for immediate wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
