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 1 1/4" x 3/8". It is hand-decorated by a Viking craftsman, 1000 years ago! Two panels of similar motif, a square divided by a saltire with triangle infill, are divided by toothed rectangles. It has been professionally refurbished with a 24karat gold overlay restored and mounted to a gilt Sterling silver 18” neck chain for modern wear. It comes with a certification of authenticity, and jewelry gift boxed.
