Large size 10. A heavy band with raised twist segment in the full round to the top half. That form rarely encountered. The spiral or helix was a form of particular interest to Vikings. It was used in full relief as here and represented in low relief (surface relief) in jewelry and other metal work. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with certification of authenticity. Vikings exchanged rings on the pommel of the groom’s sword.
