Size 8. Broad width band, 3.2mm, with low rounded face and cast with a central core which was laboriously removed to finish the ring for wear. Mottled red/brown patina with encrustation from burial. Vikings were expert metallurgists. The use of pure copper is rare and suggests a supernatural significance as alloys were much more durable. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Vikings exchanged rings on the pommel of the groom’s sword.
