Gilt bronze. 1 1/8” width. Broad borders with incised hound’s tooth band, scrolling to for the top cusp and pierced inner heart. A heart within a heart! The center merged to form a trefoil. Foliate designs were favored by Vikings and incorporated into about half of the heart pendants. The heart symbol embodied the very Viking spirit. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored, on a gilt neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
