Broad form, flat, with rounded edges. The top with a bar supporting the suspension loop. The heart with cusped top and symmetrical foliate decoration. Variant foliage motifs were very popular with Vikings. 7/8” width, cast in an open-faced mold as can be seen from the back. That method is characteristic for the period, 1000 years ago. For Vikings, the heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the warrior. It is said that Hrungnir, with whom Thor dueled (assisted by a sorceress), had a heart of stone. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
